Narrative:
On 27 April 2006 at about 1530 Eastern Standard Time, a Cessna Aircraft Company U206G (206) aircraft was being operated on a non-scheduled passenger flight from Warraber Island to Mabuiag Island, in Torres Strait. On board were a pilot, six passengers and luggage. Shortly after touchdown during the landing on runway 15 at Mabuiag Island, the aircraft commenced to veer to the left. The pilot was unable to maintain the aircraft on the runway and it continued to veer left, skidding sideways on the grass verge through a fence and into a lagoon. The pilot and passengers were able to safely vacate the aircraft.
