Some time after leaving Barranquilla, the no. 1 engine malfunctioned, so the crew had to divert to Barrancabermeja with a feathered prop. While turning to finals, the aircraft crashed and caught fire about 3km short of runway 03.

PROBABLE CAUSE: Sharp turn to the side of the dead engine caused the overloaded aircraft to lose speed and lose control.
