Circumstances:
While descending to Chachapoyas, the aircraft struck the side of Mt Coloque located 15 km from airport. With more than 9,000 flying hours, the captain seems to be responsable due to the fact that he made several mistakes during its descent as he misjudged his position Peruvian authorities said.
