Thank God passengers are alright. I heard the news on the radio and they were asking some PMV's security employee. He said aircraft's registration is YV-1003 . No "C" whatsoever. I guess he was referring to V0's second Dash-7, right? Does anybody know the actual registration of the aircraft?

I saw the video on Univision, during the evening news. from what it look like the right main landing gear wasnt down. The airplane came to a stop when it almost made a 180 degree turn. It look like it went off the runway.

Quoting Orion737 (Reply 3): Im suprised at their use of the Dash7 in the first place. Surely a Dash 8 or ATR would have been better suited, faster and more economic and reliable than the old and slow Dash 7.
Well, Conviasa started in November 2004 with this dash 7 which was transfered from the Venezuelan Navy Air force. I guess they took what they had available in order to form this government owned commercial airline and then improve and increase its fleet (which they have been doing somehow).
I miss ACES, I am proud of AVIANCA & I am loyal to AMERICAN
