A LeAir Embraer EMB-110 Bandeirante, registration C6-CAB performing a charter flight from Port de Paix (Haiti) to Nassau (Bahamas) with 21 people on board, was on final approach to Nassau's runway 32 at 13:35L (18:35Z) when the crew initiated a go around due to problems with the landing gear and entered a hold for about 15 minutes. The aircraft subsequently performed a low approach to runway 09, then positioned for another approach to runway 09 and touched down on runway 09 at 14:01L (19:01Z) about 5 minutes after the low approach. After touchdown the nose gear collapsed causing the aircraft to veer off the runway. There were no injuries.

Nassau's Airport Authority reported the aircraft with 21 people on board veered off the runway. There were no injuries. Passengers and their luggage were taken to the terminal.

Bahamas' AAIA have opened an investigation into the occurrence.
