D-EQCO ditched "successfully" on 22 of August 2009 10 nm off the Belgian Coast, N 051° 16,154’ - E 002° 26,923’. The pilot stated that in flight the engine was producing a disturbing noise, and while the engine was rotating normally, the propeller was losing power; as felt by the pilot and seen on the instruments.

The pilot considered he could not safely reach land, and decided to put its airplane in the
water.

He landed the airplane in see next to the Oostdijk platform, and was rescued by a small
vessel. 30 minutes later, he was picked up by a SAR helicopter. The pilot was not
injured. The airplane sank.
