Descripción:
The left main undercarriage leg collapsed, causing the wing to touch the ground. The nr.1 propeller then separated, causing one of the blades to cut through the fuselage injuring the captain. A fire erupted as the plane came to a halt. The three flight crew members were unable to reach the passenger cabin due to the flames, so they exited the plane through the hole made by the propeller. The captain later died of his injuries.
