Narrative:The aircraft had apparently had two previous missed approaches. On the third attempt, the plane landed approximiately three quarters of the way down the runway. Despite very heavy braking that left black streaks down the remaining runway, the plane swerved to the right and then overran onto the beach where the nosewheel dug in and the plane tipped onto its nose, causing both props to strike the ground.
Piper PA-23 Aztec
