Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The Jetstream 32EP suffered a propeller strike accident while taxiing through a flooded turning pad near the threshold of runway 24 at Iquitos International Airport (IQT), Peru.

The Aviation Accident Investigation Commission of the Ministry of Transportation and Communications determined the following as the "Probable Cause of the Accident":
"Loss of Situational Awareness of the crew due to a state of complacency, which led them not to appreciate the magnitude of the flooding and take the wrong decision to continue taxiing to the turning point of runway 24, which was flooded, producing the impact of the blades of both propellers against the water -Propeller Strike-".
a. The crew disregarded the NOTAM notice, which warned that the turning platform at heading 24 was flooded and that they should take the respective precautions.
b. The airport infrastructure (river water drainage system) is a factor linked to the Propeller Strike accident, because the channel did not have the capacity to drain rainwater in the required amount to avoid flooding on the turning platform of runway 24.
