The desperate final words of the pilot on the doomed plane which crashed in Colombia killing 71 people have emerged.

Miquel Quiroga - who had a Brazilian football team onboard his plane - begged air traffic control for help as his plane began to plummet towards the mountains.

Another pilot flying nearby at the time, Juan Sebastian Upegui, says he heard the conversation between Miquel and air traffic control and has now given a full account of the terrifying final moments before the crash.

After declaring an emergency and saying "there's no fuel" he says the pilot shouted at air traffic controllers to "Help us" before screaming "We're going down".

This is a transcript of the pilot's final words heard by the second pilot as the plane began to plummet to the ground.

"The GPS isn’t working, I don’t know what’s happening.
