17-Jun-1979 Crashed  into  heavily  wooded  area  1.5  miles  northeast  of  Barnstable  Airport,  Hyannis  MA  while  on  approach.  Subsequent  investigation determined the cause to be a combination of gross deviation from acceptable approach parameters and lack of crew coordination. There was just a single fatality, the aircraft Captain – the Vice President of Air New England.

Wreckage was sold to Newcal Aviation Inc., Little Ferry, NJ 16-Jul-1979 for parts.
