On August 30, 2013, a privately owned Cessna 210 crashed in Ypehû Paraguay en route from Silvio Pettirossi airport to Mariscal Estigarribia, Chaco.

The pilot and five passengers died at the scene. Several of the victims were thrown from the plane.

The wreckage was discovered at ten pm.

Moacir Antonio Kuschel and his son Adriano Kuschel were identified, both Brazilian residents of San Alberto del Department of Alto Parana. Four victims remain unidentified. It is believed that Adriano Kuschel was piloting the plane. The Kuschels produced soy. One of the passengers is presumed to be Spanish.

The Cessna had developed engine problems, and crashed in a remote area, a wheat field difficult to access, five miles from Ypehû Paraguay. The beacon was activated at 19.22 hrs, which began the search.

Prosecutor José Zarza will be investigating.
