The 1982 Aerocondor DHC-4 Caribou accident happened on 1 September 1982 when a twin-engined de Havilland Canada DHC-4 Caribou (registered in Ecuador as HC-BHZ) on an internal scheduled passenger flight operated by Aerolíneas Cóndor (Aerocondor) from Zumba Airport to Loja Airport collided with high ground in the Andes in bad weather. The terrain and weather hindered the search and rescue operations, and helicopters did not reach the accident site until 4 September 1982; all 44 on board were killed.
