Few minutes after he left Isla del Rey Airport, while overflying the bay of Panama City, pilot informed ATC about engin problems. Unable to reach the Panama City-Marcos A. Gelabert Airport, pilot reduced his altitude and elected to make an emergency landing on Perico Island, some 10 km south of Panama City Airport. After touch down, aircraft went out of control and collided with a container. All eight occupants were uninjured while the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
