Circumstances:
Landing at Angra dos Reis was performed with strong winds and turbulences, up to 60 knots according to some pilots. After touch down, aircraft made a spin and overrun. It lost its both main gears and came to rest. Both occupants were uninjured while the aircraft was considered as damaged beyond repair. First accident involving an Embraer Phenom. It appears that a Beechcraft Super King Air 200 burst some tires upon landing that same day in Angra dos Reis Airport due to marginal weather conditions.
