Descripción:
A Douglas DC-3, operated by Arall Colombia, was destroyed by fire following a forced landing near Puerto Gaitán, Colombia. The three occupants were injured.
The aircraft took off from runway 04 at Puerto Gaitán Airport about 06:22 hours local time. Upon rotation of the aircraft, the crew heard an explosion from the no.1 (left) engine. The pilot noticed that the no.1 engine cover had torn away, hitting the propeller blades. The aircraft began to lose height and speed and the crew decided to perform an emergency landing in a field.
The aircraft struck the ground causing detachment of the propellers and parts of the aircraft. After coming to rest, a post-impact fire started that consumed much of the aircraft.
An inspection of the engine revealed that one of the cylinder heads had broken away. Parts were found near the end of the runway.

Probable Cause:

Causa probable:
Aplicación equivocada por parte de la tripulación, del procedimiento de emergencia por falla del motor No. 1, ya que redujo las RPM del motor operativo (No. 2), haciendo que se sobrepasara la limitante BMEP produciendo un stall del motor (No. 2) , imposibilitando el vuelo del avión y obligando a la ejecución de un aterrizaje forzoso.

Factores Contribuyentes:
Falla de motor No. 1, ocasionada por el desprendimiento de la cabeza de un cilindro durante el despegue.
Deficientes procedimientos de mantenimiento que no anticiparon ni previnieron la falla del componente.
