  • The crew left Subang-Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport at 0835LT for a local training flight. Ten minutes later, an engine failed, forcing the captain to attempt an emergency landing. The aircraft crash landed into the sea, few meters off the beaches of Taman Malawati Utama, south of Kuala Selangor. The copilot was injured (broken arm) while seven other occupants escaped unarmed. The aircraft was destroyed by a post crash fire. Fire on left engine is suspected.
