Rio De Janeiro: Five people were killed when a small plane they were travelling in crashed in Brazil, the Air Force reported Sunday.

The light aircraft crashed Saturday on the outskirts of the city of Corumba, in Mato Grosso do Sul state, along the country`s border with Paraguay and Bolivia, Xinhua reported.

The plane had taken off from the state capital, Campo Grande, some 400 km from the crash site, at dawn, and reportedly sent an emergency warning an hour into the flight.

The passengers were heading to a hacienda in Brazil`s Pantanal region, along the border, the Air Force said.
