Circumstances:
Following an uneventful flight, crew started the descent to Riberalta Airport in poor weather conditions. After touch down, aircraft went out of control, veered off runway and came to rest inverted in flames. At least eight passengers were killed. Aircraft was destroyed by impact forces and post impact fire.
Probable cause:
According to first evidences, it appears that aircraft landed long on runway 14 (1,830 meters long). Thus, the available distance was insufficient for a safe braking procedure and aircraft overrun before coming to rest upside down in flames.
