LATAM Chile flight 1325, an Airbus A320, was damaged after flying through a hail storm. After landing in Asunción, damage was noted on the windshield, and an engine. Also, almost the entire nose radome had broken away.

The flight had initially diverted to Foz do Iguaçu Airport (IGU), after failing to land at Asunción Airport (ASU) due to strong winds and limited visibility as a result of a thunderstorm.

At 00:51 UTC, about three hours later landing, the flight departed IGU again for ASU. The flight attempted to circumnavigate the storm, but was apparently still caught by a hail storm. A safe landing was made at 02:03 UTC.

Weather at ASU during the flight from IGU to ASU:
