BAAID Releases Final Report On DC-3 Ditching Near Nassau
« on: January 14, 2020, 06:14:24 AM »
The aircraft, N437GB, ditched less than 3 miles from the runway threshold, and sank on October 18, 2019. The two crew were rescued.

"On Jan 6th 2020 the BAAID released a brief two page final factual report reporting the crew reported the left engine had failed about 25-30nm before Nassau adding that the aircraft performance following the engine failure was not optimal, so that the crew made the decision to land in the ocean. The aircraft came to a stop at position N25.0925 W77.5048 about 2.87nm short of the threshold runway 14 at Nassau Lynden Airport. The occupants did not receive any injuries in the forced landing. The aircraft could not be recovered. The BAAID stated:

The weather at the time of the accident was visual meteorological conditions and not a factor in this accident. A limited scope investigation was conducted, no safety message or recommendations were issued."
