The Antonov was flying regularly from Tumbes to Piura to evacuate people stranded by El Nino-driven floods. The plane had taken off at 09:10 from Tumbes. While approaching Piura one of the engines failed. The pilot from the heavily loaded aircraft couldn't maintain height. The Antonov eventually struck three houses of a shantytown and crashed into a canal.
There is some uncertainty about the registration.
