Détails:
The aircraft, operated by the Nayarit State Government, Mexico, was deployed to La Yesca in order to pick up two soldiers who had been injured in a traffic accident and take them to Zapopan, State of Jalisco (MMZP).
During takeoff, the Islander encountered strong cross winds that caused it to drift sideways, hitting a tree with one of the wings. The pilot lost control and crashed into the bushes. Although the plane was a total loss, the pilot was only slightly injured, and the two soldiers also escaped alive. The three of them were picked up by helicopters and taken to hospitals in the States of Jalisco and Nayarit, in stable condition.
