A visitor from Belgium posted Mon October 26, 2009:
Divi Divi Air Britten-Norman BN2 A Islander, registration PJ-SUN performing flight 016 from Curacao to Bonaire (Netherlands Antilles) with 9 passengers and 1 pilot, ditched before the coast of Bonaire when the pilot realized he could not reach the airport anymore following the failure of the right hand engine (Lycoming IO-540). The airplane impacted the water with considerable force at around 11:15L (15:15Z) causing the pilot to strike the windscreen with his head and being knocked unconscious. The passengers were unable to open his seat belt, but all 9 passengers were able to leave the airplane and were taken aboard a boat that quickly arrived at the scene. The airplane sank, the pilot was killed.
