Narrative:Shortly after takeoff the right propeller developed negative thrust due to a malfunction. The crew was not able to counteract as the altitude was too low, and the aircraft crashed in a forest 1,350 metres behind the runway threshold and 310 metres to the right of the runway's extended centreline.
