The airport of Belo Horizonte-Pampulha was closed all day to traffic due to heavy rain falls and reopened in the afternoon. About thirty minutes into the flight, bound for Santos Dumont Airfield in Rio de Janeiro, the crew encountered poor visibility with a low cloud base. While flying at an insufficient altitude, the aircraft hit the slope of a mountain located near Rio Doce, killing all 25 occupants.
