A no. 1 engine faulty fuel injection nozzle caused a blow torch effect, damaging compressor turbine vane ring and causing thermal fatigue and loss of one of the turbine blades. The resulting imbalance ruptured the starting control bypass fuel return. The engine was shut down and an emergency landing attempted on a nearby runway. The Bandeirante stalled however and crashed 1 km short of the runway.
