The crew started the approach to Chub Cay Airport by night when the twin engine airplane crashed into the sea few km offshore. SAR operations were conducted but eventually abandoned after few days as no trace of the aircraft nor both pilots was found.
Due to lack of evidences, the cause of the accident could not be determined. Nevertheless, it is believed that the accident was caused by an engine failure.
