The C-130H Hercules transport plane originated in Tenerife-Norte Los Rodeos Airport (TFN) on the Spanish Canary Islands. The airplane was flying to Gando Air Base on the island of Las Palmas were it would pick up seventy soldiers.
Instead of flying along the northern coast of the island for an approach to Gando, the flight progressed over the island until it impacted a cloud-shrouded mountain named Hoya del Gamonal.
