The twin engine airplane departed Guarantã do Norte Airport, Mato Grosso, on a private flight to Apuí, Amazonas. En route, both passengers fighted in the cabin and one of them was killed. The pilot was apparently able to kill the assassin and later decided to attempt an emergency landing. He ditched the aircraft in the Rio Jamanxim. The pilot was later arrested but no drugs, no weapons, no ammunition as well a both passengers bodies were not found. Apparently, the goal of the flight was illegal but Brazilian Authorities were unable to prove it.
