Détails:
The aircraft was flying 65nm E of Belize, en route from Honduras, when the no. 1 propeller ran away. The RPM couldn't be controlled and the prop couldn't be feathered. The pilot-in-command decided to divert to Belize. At 25nm E of Belize the no. 1 prop flew off its shaft, striking the no. 2 engine. The no. 2 prop was feathered immediately. Because of problems lowering the left gear a go-around was flown. Attempts to recycle the gear into the locked position failed and a landing was carried out with the left gear partially retracted. The left wing struck the runway and the aircraft ran off the runway coming to rest 7,60 m from the runway edge.
