Unfallbericht:
A Vickers 785D Viscount passenger plane, registered HK-1058, was destroyed in an accident at Cerro El Retiro, near Cúcuta, Colombia. All 44 on board were killed. The pilot lost control of the plane when the left tailplane and elevator separated during a VMC descent through 7000 feet.
The failure had been caused by a fatigue fracture in the upper part of the tailplane. This fracture had started at the outer hole of the steel fitting at the spar flange where it joins the fuselage.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: Aircraft structure - tail unit, involving the failure in flight of the tailplane spar, so that the left tailplane and elevator became detached and control of the aircraft was lost.
