Circumstances:
The twin engine aircraft plunged into the ocean 84 km off Barbados Island after the pilot sent a mayday message. The AAIB did not found any trace of the aircraft nor pax. A reconciliation of fuel receipts and flight times shows that, at best, the aircraft would have been short of fuel for the flight, and at worst could have run out of fuel.
