On January 3, 2006, a Cessna 172RG aircraft collided with terrain shortly after departing the El Plumerillo Airport in Mendoza, Argentina, while en route to Santiago, Chile. Prior to the fatal flight, the aircraft had been involved in a massive thunderstorm that caused such great structural damage that the pilot lost control for several thousand feet while in flight. Two days later, when the pilot attempted to fly home, stress fractures on the wing struts and stabilizing bars from the storm caused the plane to disintegrate in mid-air, killing the pilot and three passengers. Attorney G. Scott Vezina was involved in the accident reconstruction and investigation, with the case ultimately being transferred to Argentinian based counsel.
