A Beechcraft 200 Catpass conversion sustained substantial damage in a forced landing near Lima-Jorge Chavez International Airport (LIM), Peru. There were no serious injuries among the ten passengers or two crew members.
The flight departed Chagual Airport at 15:55 on a flight to Lima. At 25 miles from Lima the crew there was a low fuel pressure warning. Approximately 22 miles from Lima the left engine was shut down. Within 3 miles of Lima the right engine lost power, and was also shut down. The crew declared an emergency.
The pilot perform a 180 degrees turn due to the presence of gas tanks nearby. They turned to an agricultural field where an emergency landing was performed. On touchdown the airplane swung, sustaining substantial damage.

Probable Cause:

Causes and contributing factors (translated from original Spanish report):
1. Operation with four consecutive flights made by the same crew to Chagual aerodrome (an aerodrome that demands a high alertness and situational awareness due to difficult topographical conditions), a long and exhausting day flying and working together with the multiple functions performed by the technical crew (dispatcher, payer, loader, cabin crew) probably decreased the performance and capacity of the technical crew and safety.
2. Poor planning on the part of the Operations and Sales Management of the Aero Condor Company Charter, by not providing the NOTAM which showed the lack of JET A1 fuel in Trujillo causing programming, operational and logistic difficulties.
