Crew on board:
Pax on board:
While flying by night and marginal weather conditions, the pilot did not realize he was flying too low. Aircraft hit trees and crashed in flames in a wooded area located near Amazonia. Both occupants were killed and the aircraft was destroyed by impact forces and post crash fire.
It is the opinion of the Accident Board that the probable cause of this accident was: Pilot committed an error in judgment in turning too close to the ground in a fog-bound area. Weather reporting facilities of the Company were inadequate to meet the conditions that confronted the pilot in this flight.
