According to Junta de Seguridad en el Transporte (JST) investigation, the accident was the result of a hard landing on RWY 04 of Rawson airfield. The Tomahawk was displaced to the left, veering off the runway when collided with its left wingtip; the nose landing gear collapsed, damaging propeller and engine. The pilot stated the plane "floated" over the runway for more than she expected, and the wind was to be blamed for the unstability of the landing. The accident was informed to JST one week later, and some damaged parts were removed before the investigation began.
