Incident: Caraibes AT72 Pointe a Pitre on May 25th 2019, engine shut down in flight, smoke in cabin

An Air Caraibes Avions de Transport Regional ATR-72-212A, registration F-OIXL performing flight TX-421 from Pointe-a-Pitre (Guadeloupe) to Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic), was climbing through 13,000 feet out of Guadeloupe when the left hand engine (PW127) emitted a loud bang and failed prompting the crew to shut the engine down.

Smoke developed in the cabin. The crew turned around and returned to Pointe a Pitre for a safe landing.
