Détails:
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.


Probable cause (translated from Spanish):
The cause of the accident was that the aircraft, while on short finals and cleared to land, made an unusual flight maneuver by climbing almost vertically until a wing stall and plunging violently against the terrain, bursting into flames within the security area of the runway.
