The aircraft departed St.Croix at about 10:00 for a flight to St. Barthelemy. A 360-degree turn had to be made upon arrival due to other arriving traffic. The aircraft turned an 8- mile final. At a 1,5-mile final the flaps were lowered to the full down position, the propellers were set at 2,000 rpm, airspeed 95 knots, and all three landing gear lights were illuminated. On touchdown the airplane yawed to the left. Right rudder and aileron was applied with negative results. Power was increased and the airplane continued to yaw to the left. The airplane went off the left side of the runway and ground looped, separating the right main landing gear. The airplane came to a complete stop on its fuselage with the nose gear extended.
