Pilot of the Otter reported seeing a flash right before impact. "The surviving Otter pilot, who sustained minor injuries, told investigators he had not seen any conflicting air traffic on a device in the Otter that broadcasts a plane's location and picks up locations of other planes. The Beaver also was equipped with flight-tracking equipment, according to an earlier NTSB briefing on the collision in George Inlet."

Bad water landing, sounds like he dug the nose of the floats in and it water looped and cartwheeled.
My thoughts go out to the families involved.

Brilliant detective work, specifically since the article states "Witnesses told U.S. investigators that one of the two floats on a plane in a deadly commuter crash Monday dug into water during landing, causing the right wing to hit the water and then the aircraft to cartwheel several times."

My synopsis for those too lazy to read the article.
I'd already read it elsewhere too.
