A Hummingbird Air Beech 99 Airliner operating as a flight from VC Bird International Airport in Antigua, experienced landing accident at Codrington Airport in Barbuda. The airplane sustained apparent substantial damage to the right wing and there were no reported injuries to the pilot and five passengers onboard.
During the landing on runway 10 at Codrington, Barbuda the right main landing gear appears to have struck the edge of the paved surface at the threshold of the runway. This resulted in the collapse of that landing gear causing the right propeller to come into contact with the runway surface and the aircraft to veer off the right side of the runway approximately 280 meters from the threshold and coming to rest 29 meters from the runway centreline.
