On April 12, 2006, about 1600 eastern standard time, a Colombian registered Piper PA-34-200T airplane, HK-2387, operated by Star Company impacted wires in Antioquia, Colombia. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed in the area at the time, and an visual flight rules flight plan was filed. The pilot and copilot were fatally injured and the airplane incurred substantial damage. The flight originated at Olaya Herrera International Airport, Medellin, Colombia, earlier that day, about 1515.

According to information obtained from an official with the Colombian DGAC, the airplane was approaching to land at Amalfi Airport, Antioquia, Colombia, and during the approach it became entangled in electrical wires.


Right engine shutdown, possibly due to lack of fuel, which caused the aircraft to descend, aggravated by the extended landing gear and flaps that produced an impact against a power line carrier pole.

The taxonomic classification according to ICAO is CFIT-FUEL..
