The aircraft took off from Teodelina (Santa Fe) at 21:15 hours, with the intention of making an application flight of fungicide in a wheat field located in Fortín Acha (Buenos Aires, Argentina).
During the last fumigation pass, from east to west and with the sun in the front, the aircraft hit a pole. As a result of the impact the power line cable became entangled in the right wing and in the nose of the plane, generating a traction effect that reversed the aircraft and caused it to crash.
