On August 21, 2021, an Aerosucre Boeing 737-200 was forced to make an emergency landing with an open cargo door at Mit-Fabio Alberto León Bentley Airport in Colombia.

The Boeing 737-200F, registered HK-5026, was on a domestic freight flight in Colombia. It returned to its original airfield, however, after the main cargo door opened in flight.

Footage circulated on the internet shows the Colombian airliner landing with a wide-open cargo door, however it was partially closed after landing.

The cargo plane landed safely at Mitu Airport and was immediately taken into maintenance.

The Boeing 737-200, also known as the “Breguinha” in Brazil, was involved in the tragedy. Aerosauce received it on November of 2013. However, it was first delivered to Lufthansa in February 1981 and is now 40.6 years old.
