Beschrijving:
The Skyvan approached runway 15 in fog at 700-800 feet when about 0,5 mile out. With an already steep approach, the nose suddenly pitched down to 45 degrees. The aircraft struck the water, cartwheeled onto the right wingtip and sank in 12-15 feet deep water, 1800 feet short of the runway.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The loss of effective elevator control due to the forward shift of improperly secured cargo when the aircraft was placed in a steep nosedown attitude during a landing approach in reduced visibility conditions."
