Circumstances:
The crew was completing a training flight on this Tracker delivered to Armada Argentina in 1978. In flight, technical problems forced the crew to make an emergency landing in a field near the Comandante Espora Air Base located in Bahía Blanca, Argentina. As both crew were slightly injured, the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
