Beschrijving:
The aircraft departed La Sabana Airport at 12:11 for a 27-minute flight to San Isidro. The aircraft touched down on runway 02, which was very wet. The DC-3 skidded off the runway and crashed into a house, 20 feet past the runway area. A baby living in the house was killed.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The crew could not hold back the aircraft on its landing run because of the ineffectiveness of the brakes on an extremely wet runway. This condition was aggravated by the fact that the aircraft was operating with almost maximum landing weight."
