Rico Linhas Aéreas Flight 4815 was a domestic scheduled passenger flight, flying from São Paulo de Olivença in northeast Brazil to Manaus, the capital of the Brazilian state of Amazonas. On 14 May 2004, the aircraft operating the flight, an Embraer EMB 120 Brasilia, crashed into the dense Amazon rainforest while on approach to Manaus. All 33 people on board were killed in the crash.
