Narrative:
The 767 departed runway 09 at Porlamar (PMV) on Isla Margarita. Instead of maintaining runway heading, the airplane turned left to 032 degrees on a heading direct towards the PERRY intersection (located in the Caribbean at 13░ 14' 37N 63░ 5' 14W). This took the airplane over mountainous terrain. The GPWS began to sound and the plane was pulled up a bit. At a height of about 1000 m the left wing struck one of five TV masts on top of the Cerro Copey, some 8 or 9 metres below the top. The top of the mast was ripped off and the airplane sustained substantial damage to the left wing. After dumping fuel, a safe landing was made back at Porlamar.

Classification:

Forced landing on runway
