Circumstances:
While taking off from the bay off Jinshan (south of Shanghai), the single engine aircraft hit a concrete bridge and crashed into the sea. One pilot and four passengers were killed while five other occupants were injured. The seaplane C208 EX version was destroyed. It is believed that the crew misjudged the distance between the departure point and the bridge as the collision occurred just after rotation.
