An Aer Caribe Antonov An-32 cargo plane suffered a runway excursion after landing at Iquitos Airport, Peru.
The aircraft landed normally on runway 06 at Iquitos Airport. At a distance of 1225m from the threshold of runway 06, the crew turned off the "PROPS STOP" switch. This caused a gradual and uncontrolled turn of the aircraft to the left. It veered off the side at a distance of 1475m from the runway 06 threshold.
The aircraft moved on a flat surface but struck a drainage ditch, which led to the separation of the right wing, right engine, right main gear and a fire.
