While taking off from runway 05 at San Fernando Airport, in initial climb, the aircraft banked right and crashed in a field along the runway. The aircraft skidded for several yards before coming to rest in flames. While both pilots were injured, the aircraft owned by Lázaro Baez was destroyed by fire. It appears that an engine failed on rotation.
