A Viking DHC-6-400 Twin Otter of the Peruvian Air Force, operated by Grupo 42, veered off the runway while landing at San Lorenzo Airport (SPQM) in heavy rain.

There were no fatalities and the aircraft sustained minor damage. The plane was carrying twelve passengers.

The light transport plane, which departed from Iquitos, was transporting passengers and cargo to the town of San Lorenzo, and also planned to arrive in the city of Tarapoto, in the San Martín region. It was reported that the aircraft ended up in the brush, on one side of the airfield runway. Apparently, the rains in the area caused the accident.

According to witnesses, the plane landed normally, but the high humidity of the runway caused the tires to sink, causing the respective confusion.
