2 Planes Go Down in Colombia

United Press International

A commercial twin-engine plane carrying 23 people crashed in the mountains of western Colombia today, and search planes were dispatched to look for another plane with 17 aboard that disappeared minutes later.

The routes of the two planes were about 150 miles apart. Civil aeronautics officials said a search plane found the wreckage of a commercial plane owned by Aces, a Colombian company, but it was not immediately known if there were survivors. The second plane, owned by Aires, also a Colombian firm, had not been found.
