Narrative:
Piper Aztec C6-TIM was involved in a ground collision at the General Aviation Center at the Lynden Pindling International Airport (MYNN). There were two persons on board.
The pilot reported that during his taxi on the ramp at the General Aviation Center, while taxing to a parking spot, his nose gear fell into a pothole that was obscured due to the standing water in the ramp area. The pot hole contact resulted in the nose gear collapsing causing damage to the nose of the aircraft, both propellers and possibly both engines. No injuries were received by the occupants of the aircraft.
The weather at the time of the occurrence was visual meteorological conditions, however, the airport and ramp area contained a substantial amount of standing water due to previous rain showers.
