Détails:
A Beechcraft B200 Super King Air crashed on a sand bar in the Río de la Plata, 10 km southwest of the destination Carmelo, Uruguay. Five occupants died.
The aircraft departed San Fernando, Argentina, at 12:22 on a short VFR flight to Carmelo Airport, Uruguay. The pilot first carried out an approach to runway 35 to observe the conditions. After going around, he decided to perform another approach with the intention to land. Visibility was poor, so the landing would only be carried if the pilot found a clear area.
The aircraft was performing a left hand descending circuit when it impacted a mud flat in the waters of the Rio de la Plata.

Probable Cause:

Probable cause:
Loss of situational awareness due to poor hazard perception and risk assessment, leading to an impact on the ground without loss of control (CFIT) and the combination of the following factors:
- Failure to make a decision not to return to the aerodrome of departure or to the alternative, in the presence of adverse weather conditions at the destination aerodrome.
- Failure to make a decision by intentionally continuing an approach (VFR) to the destination aerodrome, whose meteorological conditions were marginal (IMC), not respecting minimum operating altitudes, nor the meteorological minimums for aerodromes.
- Deficient evaluation of risk analysis of the situation, decision making and probably degradation of piloting skills, due to a combination of physiological and psychological factors.
