Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The Cessna 560XL Citation XLS corporate jet with 9 people on board made an emergency landing in a cornfield due to a double engine flame out, 6 km from Otamendi, in the middle of a storm.

During the descent (when crossing flight level FL330), the right engine experienced an increase in the turbine interstage temperature (ITT), so the crew decided to stop the engine. Approximately 25 seconds later a similar situation occurred in the left engine until it stopped by itself. The crew declared the emergency to Mar del Plata ATC and made an emergency landing on an unprepared field.
The aircraft experienced significant damage. The occupants were not injured.
