Pax on board:
While descending to Blumenau Airport, the crew encountered poor weather conditions and decided to divert to Navegantes-Itajaí Airport. On approach to runway 25, at low height, the captain initiated a left turn when the twin engine aircraft struck the top of a hill and crashed, bursting into flames. All four occupants were killed.
On final approach in limited visibility due to poor weather conditions, the pilot-in-command lost control of the airplane after suffering a spatial disorientation.
