Narrative:
On October 17, 1995, about 1530 Atlantic standard time, a Siai Marchetti, N913WJ, crashed into the Atlantic Ocean about 129 miles southeast of Great Exuma, Bahamas. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time and a VFR flight plan was filed for the 14 CFR part 91 ferry flight to Freeport, Grand Bahama Island, Bahamas. The pilot, the sole occupant, received minor injuries. He was rescued by the United States Coast Guard and transported to Great Inagua, Bahamas. The airplane sank and was not recovered, therefore the airplane is assumed to be destroyed. The flight had originated from Port-au-Prince, Haiti, earlier that same day.

Due to the remote location of the accident no further information is available at this time.

The pilot reported that the engine failed for undetermined reasons. Multiple attempts to obtain a Pilot/Operator Aircraft Accident Report, NTSB form 6120.1/2, have been met with negative results.
PROBABLE CAUSE:loss of engine power for undetermined reason(s), which result in a ditching at sea.
