Circumstances:
The right main gear collapsed on landing at Teniente Rodolfo Marsh Airport, Antarctica. The aircraft was conducting a supply mission from Punta Arenas, carrying a load of various goods and several passengers and crew members. The aircraft came to rest on snowy runway and the propeller detached from engine number four. There were no injuries. The airplane was later parked on the apron and repairs were scheduled. Eventually, in early 2017, it was decided to scrap the airplane which was destroyed on site. All debris were placed in a container and later shipped back to Brazil.
