Another Plane Crash in the Bahamas

(click for larger image)

A plane crashed into the water at Staniel Cay in the Bahamas the day before yesterday.  The pilot and passenger suffered just minor injuries and walked (swam) away from the partially submerged aircraft shown above.

These sorts of private aircraft incidences have been occurring more frequently in the Bahamas this year.  In Abaco, a medical evac pilot was killed when he ran into vehicles parked near the runway to light the unlit runway with headlights.

If you are a private pilot going to the Bahamas, be aware that infrastructure for pleasure flying is crumbling and deteriorating, and expect the unexpected while landing, taking off and flying through the Bahamas.
