Descripción:
A Curtiss C-46 transport plane was destroyed in an accident at Santa Cruz-Viru Viru International Airport (VVI), Bolivia. Three crew members were killed, the passenger survived.
The flight departed Santa Cruz (VVI) at 08:07 on a domestic cargo flight to Cobija (CIJ). Immediately after takeoff the flight radioed that it was returning to the airport, without stating a reason.
The airplane was on short final to runway 16 when it pulled up sharply. Control was lost and the aircraft fell of to the right, impacting terrain about 200 m from the northern end of runway 16.


La causa del accidente se debió a que la aeronave -cuando se encontraba en tramo final corto y autorizado a aterrizar- efectúa una maniobra de vuelo inusual al ascender en forma casi vertical hasta entrar en pérdida de ala y precipitarse violentamente contra la superficie, estallando en llamas dentro el área de seguridad de la pista.
