The right main landing gear was damaged during the take-off run at Krasnoyarsk Airport (KJA) and did not retract. The aircraft burnt fuel and returned to the airport for an emergency landing on a grass/dirt strip at the airport.
Some 70 metres after touchdown the right main gear broke off and later on the right central wing section was damaged, causing a fuel spill. A fire erupted. Two passengers exited the airplane on the right hand side and suffered severe burns. Both later died in a hospital.
