Pax on board:
Shortly after takeoff from San Juan Airport, the crew informed ground that the engine n°4 caught fire and was cleared to return for an emergency landing. Following a normal approach, the airplane landed properly but after a course of 950 meters, it went out of control and veered off runway to the right. While contacting soft ground, the nose gear collapsed and the aircraft came to rest. All four crew members escaped uninjured.
Fire on engine n°4 during initial climb for undetermined reasons.
