Circumstances:
Following an uneventful cargo flight from Guarapuava, the crew started the descent to Curitiba-Bacacheri Airport by night and adverse weather conditions. After touchdown on a wet runway surface, the twin engine aircraft went out of control, overran and collided with a concrete wall. All three occupants were injured, one of the pilot seriously.
Probable cause:
The decision of the crew to land at Curitiba-Bacacheri Airport was not appropriate due to poor weather conditions. The crew underestimated the weather conditions at destination and should take the decision to divert to a more suitable terrain.
