A Cessna 150 (LV-CQJ) and a Petrel 912i (LV-BSH) crashed following a mid air collision near General Rodríguez, Argentina. Both occupants of the Cessna were killed. One of the two occupants of the Petrel survived with serious injuries. LV-CQJ was in a traning flight and was on his 3rd. approach to runway 34 after the 2nd touch and go.

During a general aviation operation, a mid-air collision occurred between the LV-CQJ and the LV-BSH during the manoeuvre to enter the final section of runway 34 at Durana Aerodrome. The following factors contributed to the triggering of the accident
- The failure of the pilots of the respective aircraft to visually acquire their respective aircraft, which caused the converging trajectories of the aircraft to go undetected during the circuit; and
- Misalignments in the operation of the LV-BSH with respect to normatively established provisions for operation at uncontrolled airfields in terms of traffic patterns and communications.
Although it is not possible to establish a direct causal relationship with the accident, the following factors have the potential to generate operational contexts such as the context in which this accident took place
- The limitations of the "see and avoid" principle as the primary means of separation between aircraft during operation in the traffic circuit of uncontrolled public aerodromes;
- The integrity and effectiveness of existing regulatory provisions for operation at uncontrolled public aerodromes in providing adequate margins of protection for such operations; and
- The specific conditions of operation at Durana Aerodrome and their potential impact on the deterioration of safety margins.
