A Skyways Enterprises Shorts 360, operating a flight from Sint Maarten to San Juan, Puerto Rico, for FedEx, crashed into the water shortly after takeoff killing both crew-members on board.

The accident occurred late on the evening of October 29, 2014, after the plane took off from runway 28, over Maho Beach, when the plane crashed into the water.

The flight took off into a thunderstorm, which may have contributed to the accident.

Due to the poor weather, there were few witnesses to the crash on the beaches to aid in the investigation.
