Few minutes after he departed Isla del Rey Airport, while overflying the bay of Panama City, the pilot informed ATC about engine problems. Unable to reach Panama City-Marcos A. Gelabert Airport, the pilot reduced his altitude and elected to make an emergency landing on the Perico Island, some 10 km south of Panama City Airport. After touchdown, the aircraft rolled for few dozen metres before coming to rest against a container. All eight occupants escaped uninjured while the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
