    According to what I have found the location of the downed plane was:

    10║ 29' sul e 53║ 15' oeste
    or
    10║ 29' south and 53║ 15' west

    http://www.tudorondonia.com.br/new/ler.asp?id=1718

    That address appears to me to be approximate. I have looked for more exact address, but had not found any other information. The only articles that I have found so far are all in Portuguese.

    I've founded the location by http://tecnologia.terra.com.br/inter...EI4801,00.html .

    The 737-800 was dismantled on air. Lots of parts everywhere.
    The photos of the wings was the best thing to show that was an accident involving an aircraft that was not "little" (The last link of the file shows the dimension of the 737 wings together with three Brazilian Air Force -FAB- rescue men).

    I could be wrong, but since the disaster still very "fresh", the informations are very difficult to be 100% correct.

    The area of the accident could be transformed to our "Bermuda's Triangle", since another 737 (A 737-241 PP-VMK ) had crashed (In 1989) "close" to this 737-800 crash site.

    The 737-241 PP-VMK crash site is, according to the site http://aviation-safety.net/database/...0903-0&lang=en :
    10║46S, 052║21W

    More informations about the PP-VMK crash could be found here:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varig_Flight_254

    Only for information:
    The 737-800 was 17 days old.
    The Legacy had just lifted-off from the manufacturer (EMBRAER, at Sao Jose dos Campos)...

    155 lifes...
    Two brand new aircrafts...
