The Caravelle was operating on a cargo flight from Bogotá to Mitú via Yopal. The aircraft departed Yopal at 13:45. While attempting to land at Mitú, the landing gear struck the ground short of the threshold. The crew carried out a go around and returned to Yopal. En route the no. 1 engine was shut down because of low oil pressure. The Caravelle flew over the control tower at Yopal twice to determine the state of the undercarriage. It appeared that part of the left main landing gear was missing. The crew then positioned the plane for an approach and landing. As the plane turned into long final it struck the ground, crash-landed in a meadow and caught fire. The cargo consisted of a.o. 14 barrels with 55 gallons of gasoline each.
