The twin engine airplane departed Bogotá-El Dorado Airport at 1158LT on a charter flight to Villavicencio-La Vanguardia Airport, carrying five passengers and one pilot. En route, while cruising in poor weather conditions (low clouds and rain falls), the pilot informed ATC about the failure of the left engine. Unable to maintain a safe altitude, the aircraft descended until it struck the slope of a mountain located near Quetame. The aircraft was destroyed and all six occupants were killed.
Failure of the left engine in flight for unknown reasons.
