Amazonas governor Wilson Lima said the group often went fishing in Rio Negro.

The passengers are all through to be friends from other parts of Brazil also involved in fishing.

The bodies of the victims, 12 passengers and two crew members, were removed from the scene and were transported to a local school, as there is no cold storage facility in the city.

The plane was a Embraer EMB-110P1 Bandeirante, a smaller plane often used on short haul flights.

A Brazilian Air Force aircraft later arrived in Barcelos to transport the bodies back to their families.

The Brazilian Air Force (FAB) said in a statement that investigators from the Accident Investigation and Prevention Center (CENIPA) had been called in to begin an investigation into the crash of the small aircraft, an Embraer Bandeirante with the registration PT-SOG.

Amazonas state security secretary Vinicius Almeida said initial information suggested the plane crashed after running out of runway.

Sources say the area also experienced heavy rain, which cut off electricity in parts of the city on Saturday making communication difficult.

According to G1, the plane’s owner, Manaus Aerotáxi, said the aircraft and its crew met all the necessary requirements for flying.

Several bystanders have shared footage of the plane being inspected on the ground on social media after the accident on Thursday.

Tributes have poured in online for the men who died onboard.
