Détails:
Cessna 208 Caravan VT-AAN, a float equipped plane, was engaged in a round trip from Port Blair with intermediate stops at Dugong Creek and Hut Bay. The aircraft took-off from Hut Bay for Port Blair where it was intended to land on sea adjacent to Viper Island. Soon after touchdown, the aircraft flipped over its nose and sank. Three persons including the pilot evacuated the aircraft. However, one person died due to drowning, as he remained strapped in his seat.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The pilot failed to ensure that the landing gears are fully retracted before landing on water thereby causing the aircraft to flip on to its back as a result of abnormally high hydrodynamic drag generated on landing with landing gears remaining extended. Non-availability of the revised pilot's check-list, appropriate to the aircraft configuration and the practice adopted during conversion training of the pilot were the contributory factors".
