Circumstances:
Owned by Mauri Viana, a local council, the twin engine aircraft was performing a flight from Cuiabá to Londrina with a crew of two and six passengers (three adults and three children). On approach to runway 13 in Londrina, the aircraft stalled and crashed onto a hangar located in the Marechal Hermes da Fonseca Street, about 5 km from runway 13 threshold. As six tanker trucks were parked in the hangar, severe explosions occurred and none of the eight occupants survived the crash. No other people on the ground were injured. An engine failure is suspected according to locals.
