Circumstances:
Crew was performing a cargo flight from Lima to Malvinas, east part of Peru, and left Lima-Jorge Chavez Airport at 1009LT for a 78 minutes flight. After 32 minutes into the mission, while overflying Andes mountains at FL195, aircraft disappeared from radar screens and crashed in a mountainous region near Tomas. SAR arrived on scene one day later and all four occupants were killed while the aircraft was destroyed by impact forces.
Probable cause:
Both engines failed in flight due to icing accumulation and incorrect use of deicing systems.
Following factors were considered as contributory:
Poor flight planning on part of the crew,
Poor crew resources management,
Poor crew simulator training (icing detection and dual engine failure),
Lack of procedures relating to icing conditions and dual engine failure,
Marginal weather conditions which contributed to ice accumulation on engines and airframe.

Circumstances:
Following an uneventful flight, aircraft approached Andahuaylas Airport and landed on runway 03. After touch down, while decelerating to 40 knots, aircraft veered to the left. Crew counteracted but aircraft continued to the left, went through the grass and eventually down a four meters high embankment before coming to rest. While all 19 occupants were uninjured, aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
Probable cause:
It appears that the loss of directional control after touch down was caused by the failure of the brake system.
Aircraft had already several technical problems with its brake systems previous to the flight and maintenance was performed by technicians the day before the accident. For unknown reasons, the problem was resolved but no feedback or troubleshooting was performed on part of the technicians or the crew.
Captain was aware of the problem and took the decision to complete the flight despite the risk the problem may persist or happen again.

Circumstances:
Following an uneventful flight, crew continued the approached while the aircraft was unstabilized. On touch down on runway 07, aircraft bounced twice when the crew retracted the landing gear. Aircraft landed on its belly and slid for 600 meters before coming to rest. All nine occupants escaped uninjured while the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
Probable cause:
Erroneous retraction of the landing gear following 2 bounces on the runway due to an unstabilized final approach and poor crew resource management.
Contributing factors were:
- Although the descent and landing checklists were followed, the crew did not review stabilized approach criteria or procedures for a possible controlled flight into terrain and did not take into consideration the possibility of any go around procedure
- several call-outs were non-standard while others were missing
- descent was continued under visual flight rules, approach was unstabilized and not detected by crew
- speed was too high on touch down while the power levers were not into idle position
- lack of corrective action on part of the crew when the aircraft was bouncing
- Loss of situational awareness led to the retraction of the landing gear.
