The CASA CN 212-200 Aviocar, N497CA, veered off the runway during landing on runway 23L at Raleigh/Durham Airport, NC (RDU), USA.
The aircraft operated on a flight out of Raeford West Airport, NC. The aircraft developed problems with the fixed right-hand landing gear (seemingly a loss of the wheel) and headed towards RDU.
As it was flying over the Fuquay-Varina neighborhood at 4000 feet at 14:31, the co-pilot jumped of or fell from the aircraft, causing fatal injuries.
Flight tracking websites show that the aircraft continued to RDU, making a low pass over runway 23L at 14:43 hours local time before circling for an approach and landing. During landing, the aircraft swung off the side of the runway to the right, coming to rest in the grass.
