Crashed on 09/28/1971 in Sena Madureira, Acre, Brazil. The left engine failed soon after the takeoff. Unable to gain height due to the heavy load (28 px + 4 crew + bags), the pilot tried a left turn to return to the runway but the left wing collided with a giant tree in surrounding Amazon forest. The plane crashed violently into the ground about 2.5 km from the runway, exploding and burning up. All pax and crew died on site.
