Pax on board:
The twin engine aircraft was completing a charter flight from Sarasota to Cap Haïtien with an intermediate stop at George Town, Bahamas. Thirty minutes after takeoff from George Town Airport, while cruising at an altitude of 9,000 feet, the pilot informed ATC about the failure of the right engine and was cleared to divert to Matthew Town. On approach, the left engine also lost power and the aircraft entered an uncontrolled descent and crashed in the sea about 2 km offshore. The pilot was rescued and both passengers were killed.
Engine failure for unknown reasons.
