Circumstances:
Shortly after takeoff from San Fernando Airport in Buenos Aires, while in initial climb, the crew was contacted by ATC about an apparent transponder issue. The crew failed to report and the aircraft disappeared after it apparently crashed north of the airfield, five minutes after its departure. More than one week later, the authorities did not find any trace of the aircraft nor the three occupants. It is believed the aircraft crashed into the delta of Paraná.
