On approach to Posadas-Libertador General José de San Martín Airport, the crew encountered low visibility due to foggy conditions. Despite the fact he was unable to establish a visual contact with the runway, the crew decided to continue the approach when the aircraft landed on the taxiway parallel to the runway. After a course of 800 metres, the aircraft overran, lost its undercarriage and came to rest. Both pilots escaped uninjured and the aircraft was written off.
The crew continued the approach without establishing a proper visual contact with the runway and failed to initiate a go-around. The poor visibility caused by foggy conditions was considered as a contributing factor.
