The approach to Paraty Airport was completed in poor weather conditions with rain falls when the airplane went out of control and crashed into the sea near Ilha Rasa (Island of Rasa), about 4 km short of runway 28. Quickly on site, rescuers found a passenger alive but it was impossible to evacuate the people from the cabin that was submerged. Eventually, it was confirmed that all five occupants were killed in the accident, among them Carlos Alberto, founder of Hotel Emiliano in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo and the Supreme Court Justice Teori Zavascki who had a central role overseeing a massive corruption investigation about the Brazilian oil Group Petrobras.
