The twin engine aircraft departed Pucallpa on a geophysical survey mission on behalf of a mining company. The fuel reserve gave an autonomy of 10 hours. About two hours and a half into the flight, ATC recorded a brief ELT signal and SAR operations were initiated. The burnt wreckage was found few hours later by the crew of a helicopter on the slope of a mountain. All three occupants were killed.
