Narrative:
The Super Trader had made an en route stop at Brindisi while on its way to Australia. The aircraft started the takeoff from runway 32 and swerved left off the runway after a 550m ground run. Rough terrain caused the left landing gear leg to be torn off. The plane came to rest at 820m past the runway threshold and burst into flames.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "Strong crosswinds with gusts and the ground condition on the edge of the runway."
