The flight OY-856 landed in Ponta Pora after it had to fly around severe thunderstorms in the destination area. The federal police in Ponta Pora reported, that the crew lost all navigation instruments and were navigating just via their magnetic compass, but lost situational awareness completely and thought, they'd be around Paraguay. With just one hour fuel left the Brasilian radar station of Cindacta de Curitiba was able to locate the airplane via their transponder signal and guided the airplane to a safe landing.
