Corpflite D228 near Vina del Mar on Sep 9th 2013, impacted ground short of runway


A Corpflite Dornier DO-228, registration CC-CNW performing a positioning flight from Los Pelambres [SCNK] to Vina del Mar (Chile) with 2 crew, was on approach to Vina del Mar from the south in fog and poor visibility when the aircraft contacted a power line and trees and fell to the ground about 7km (3.8nm) short of runway 05 at about 09:45L (12:45Z). Both pilots perished in the crash, the aircraft was destroyed.

The aircraft was about to pick up passengers at Vina del Mar.

City emergency services reported that traffic near the roundabout at Santa Julia needed to be diverted for rescue and recovery works, a number of residents in Chilquinta were without power due to the cut power lines.

On Nov 20th 2013 Germany's BFU reported in their monthly bullein that the aircraft was on a "ILS-Localizer" approach to runway 05 when it got too low and contacted ground. The BFU, representing the state of manufacture, is participating in the investigation by Chile's Authorities.

Vina del Mar features a runway 05/23 of 5760 feet/1760 meters length, an ILS approach is available for runway 05.
