Détails:
A DHC-6 Twin Otter 300 float plane, operated by Trans Maldivian Airways, suffered an accident while landing on the Hulhulé Lagoon, next to the Malé-Velana International Airport. The aircraft originated from the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island Resort at 08:08 hours local time. The co-pilot was Pilot Flying.
The flight and approach to Malé were uneventful. While landing the left float touched the water first, then the aircraft bounced
and ballooned. It then landed on the left float for a second time, and bounced again. Then the aircraft was banking excessively to the right digging the right wing tip in the water, making the aircraft veer to the right.
Then the aircraft crashed on water banking to the left with the left float digging into the water. After the accident the aircraft came to rest with the left hand wing touching the water with an apparently collapsed left hand float attachment.

Probable Cause:

Causes:
a. Improper recovery techniques from a bounced landing; application of go-around procedures whilst the aircraft was at low speed with flaps fully extended.
b. Breakdown of crew coordination during the attempted go-around.
