Pax on board:
Shortly after takeoff from Villavicencio-La Vanguardia Airport, while climbing, the right engine caught fire. The aircraft lost height then struck trees and crashed few km from the airport, bursting into flames. Three occupants were killed while three others were seriously injured.
It is believed the right engine failed because the total weight of the aircraft was well above the MTOW.
