Single engine plane with 7 pax coming from SBH. It went down on aproach approx. 5 miles from the field. No report on casualties yet. Rescue teams report it sank. My best guess it is the Cessna Caravan 208 commuter that runs SXM-SBH. It is the only single engine I know that takes 7 pax.

When I read the title I was also imagining something like an American 757 or AF A340 in the water in flaming pieces.
Good to know nothing too catastrophic,
as for the "11 different angles of photographic evidence" bit, my guess is that if any aircraft of size went down too close to the field on approach, more than a couple of those photographers might be going with it.

: crazy coincidence -- so did i. the dream was a mesh of my memories of spotting down there with the crazy landing at SBH. we landed in the water and s
: So any confirmation as to who the operator was? My best guess would be Air Caraibes, based on the aircraft and the route. But I'm just speculating.
