1.13.1  Recovery of Occupants

The force of the aircraft's impact with the water was such that human remains were fragmented. One passenger, who was a licensed pilot, had a life vest on. For most of the other occupants, it was not possible to determine whether life vests had been donned, although it was determined that the M/C was not wearing his life vest.

The condition of the remains was also affected by the extreme post-impact environmental conditions. Within days after the accident, it became evident that human remains could only be recovered as the wreckage was recovered.
