Precision Air ATR 42-500 plane crash
The ATR 42-500 operated by Precision Air Service took off from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, for a passenger flight to Bukoba, Tanzania. 39 passengers and 4 crewmembers were onboard. The aircraft overran Bukoba's runway and came to a stop submerged in Lake Victoria. 19 occupants were killed (including both pilots), and 24 survived and were taken to the hospital.
The ATR 42 had been approaching Bukoba in heavy rain, and in turbulences. The first approach was aborted, and the crew repositioned the aircraft for a second approach. During this second approach, the aircraft landed, but overran the runway and came to a stop 100 meters / 330 feet past the end of the runway, in Lake Victoria. The cabin filled rapidly with water. Only the rear part of the aircraft remained out of the water. Survivors escaped through the rear emergency exit and were picked up by fisher boats.
