On May 10, 1994, about 1330 Atlantic standard time, a Beech BE65-A80, N8021Q, registered to the pilot, Oscar A. Romaguera, crashed near Moca, Dominican Republic, while on a 14 CFR Part 91 personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time and an IFR flight plan was filed for the flight to the Dr. A. Plesman Airport, Willemstad, Curacao Island, Netherlands Antilles. The airplane was destroyed by a postcrash fire and the commercial-rated pilot and three passengers were fatally injured. The flight originated from the Puerta Plata Airport, Puerta Plata, Dominican Republic, about 15 minutes earlier.

Reportedly, the right engine was difficult to start and shortly after takeoff, Puerta Plata tower personnel reported hearing a mayday from an occupant in the accident airplane and a statement about a malfunction with the right engine. The airplane collided with a tree then the ground and was destroyed by postcrash fire. Initial information received indicated that the right propeller appeared to be feathered at the accident site.

The investigation is under the jurisdiction of the government of the Dominican Republic. Any further information pertaining to this accident may be obtained from:
