Crew on board:
Pax on board:
On landing at Rio Mato Airport, the aircraft went out of control, veered off runway and came to rest. While all ten occupants were uninjured, the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
It appears that on touchdown, the undercarriage were not fully lowered. So they collapsed and the aircraft belly landed and came to rest.
