Circumstances:
While flying at FL115 to Manaus-Eduardo Gomes Airport, crew informed ATC that left engine failed and elected to divert to the unused aerodrome of Manacapuru. While approaching runway 08, aircraft banked left and crashed in the river. 24 people were killed while 4 passengers were seriously injured. The EMB-110 is normally certified to carry 19 passengers maximum.
Probable cause:
It appears that the max takeoff weight on the EMB110 is 5,670 kg and that the total weight was 6,414 kg at takeoff from Coari. On board the aircraft was 19 seats but crew allowed 26 pax to embark, among them 8 children. Left engine failed en route.
