A Beechcraft B200 King Air was destroyed in an accident near Pias Airport, Peru. All nine on board were killed.
The airplane was chartered by Minera Aurífera Retamas SA (MARSA) to transport seven employees to a mining site. It took off from Lima at 06:25 hours local time, bound for Pias, Peru.
After flying over the Pías lagoon and seeing that the surrounding areas were covered by low clouds, especially the stretch from the beginning of the turn to the final leg of approach to the aerodrome, the crew chose to fly over the aerodrome in the opposite direction to the landing (140°). The flight then turned to the right and moved away on a course of approximately 170°, in order to make, a teardrop approach at low altitude and intercept the landing trajectory at heading 320°.
While in landing configuration, the aircraft began a pronounced left turn at low altitude, approximately 4 km from the aerodrome, flying very close to the high and low voltage power lines installed parallel to the entrance ravine. The aircraft hit two cables of and subsequently impacted a slope of a ravine at 07:41 hours. A post-impact fire erupted.

Probable Cause:

Pérdida de control de la aeronave debido al impacto con cables de alta tensión, ocasionado por la pérdida de las referencias visuales durante la aproximación para aterrizar en el aeródromo de PIAS, en inadecuadas condiciones meteorológicas.

Inadecuada información meteorológica proporcionada por el coordinador de vuelos del aeródromo de PIAS que no reflejó la real condición meteorológica del área.
Inexistencia de una cartilla de procedimientos para efectuar el descenso, aproximación, aterrizaje e idas al aire en PIAS, considerando las limitaciones meteorológicas visuales y operacionales en el área.
Limitado entrenamiento de los copilotos lo que no les permite desarrollar habilidades para un eficaz CRM en procedimientos normales y de emergencias.
