belonging to Tango Jet S.A. at AEP on 15Aug14.

This aircraft crashed when it suddenly nose-dived into two homes in the Nordelta luxury housing complex north of Buenos Aires while on approach to Aeroparque (AEP) on 14Sep14, killing both the pilot, Andy Deutsch, the former owner of LAPA Airlines, and his wife.  Nobody on the ground was hurt but both homes were destroyed by the ensuing fire.  

There was speculation in the Buenos Aires press that Mr. Deutsch, who was 78 years old at the time of the accident, might have suffered some sort of sudden physical impairment resulting in loss of control of the aircraft.  The editor of this blog is unaware that this was ever verified.
