Avianca Flight 410 was a flight that crashed at 13:17 on March 17 1988, near Cúcuta, Colombia. The aircraft was a Boeing 727-21 operated by Avianca, the national airline of Colombia. Flight 410 was a regular scheduled domestic passenger flight from Cúcuta-Camilo Daza International Airport (CUC) to Cartagena de Indias-Rafael Núñez International Airport (CTG). The aircraft crashed shortly after takeoff from runway 33 at Cúcuta.

The aircraft registration number was HK-1716. That airplane had flown previously with Pan Am, as #N321PA. The aircraft was built in 1966, and had 43,848 hours of airframe time.

There were no survivors among the 7 crew and 136 passengers.

The official cause of the crash was a controlled flight into terrain at 6,200 feet. The investigation pointed to a number of probable causes, including a non-crew pilot in the cockpit, whose presence diverted the attention of the pilot and who interfered with the operation of the aircraft, and a lack of teamwork between the pilot and co-pilot.
