Circumstances:
While approaching the Island of Margarita, en route from Maiquetía-Simon Bolivar Airport to Porlamar, the crew encountered control difficulties and informed ATC about hydraulic issues. The crew performed a rapid descent to 3,000 feet apparently to ditch the aircraft when it crashed into the sea about 16 km west off Punta Arenas. It is believed the aircraft disintegrated on impact and only few debris were found floating on water. No trace of any survivors.
