On landing, the Twin Otter veered off the runway coming to rest on the grass. No one on board was harmed.

On landing runway 10 at Marudi STOL Aerodrom (runway lengh: 1044 x 25 m) the aircraft skidded of the runway across the adjacent green where it came to a halt about 30 meters further in a nearly rectangular angle to the runway.

According to local media, none of the persons on board was injured. The Twin Otter was not damaged.

NOTE: The same aircraft (and same operator) experienced a very similar incident on 2015-08-26 at Mukah, Malaysia.
