Pax on board:
Five minutes after takeoff from Campeche Airport, both engines started to surge and lost power. The pilot reduced his altitude and attempted an emergency landing when the aircraft crash landed about 16 km from Campeche. All four occupants were slightly injured and the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
It is believed that the engine failed after the aircraft was refueled with Jet A1 iso 100LL.
