A Tropic Air Cessna 208 Caravan operating as Flight 281 experienced a runway overrun upon landing at the Belize City Municipal Airport (TZA) in Belize City and came to rest in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The right hand main gear collapsed as it ran into the water, causing the airplane to swing 180 degrees.
The airplane sustained substantial damage and the six occupants onboard were not injured. Weather may have been a factor in the accident.

The airplane had been delivered on November 19, 2014 after having been repaired by Aircraft Structures International Corp. following an accident in India. In May 2011 the aircraft, then registered VT-NES, suffered a runway excursion accident and fell into a ravine.
