A Piper PA-28, HI651, impacted the ground near Estancia Nueva, killing three occupants.

The pilot in command apparently did not visually verify the amount of fuel in the aircraft's tanks prior to take-off and the available fuel was consumed during the flight, with the engine starving, causing the aircraft to impact the ground during a manoeuvre at low altitude.
