By night, the pilot attempted to land in a prairie located in Blue Creek, west Belize. The airplane belly landed and slid for dozen meters before coming to rest, almost broken in two. The pilot leaved the scene but was quickly arrested by the local police. It is believed that it was an illegal flight as the registration on the aircraft (YV3224) is wrong. It appears that the correct registration was YV3284.
