An Antonov 28 aircraft of Enimex was damaged beyond repair in an accident at Tallinn-Ulemiste Airport (TLL), Estonia. Two occupants were killed.
The aircraft was loaded with 514 kg of cargo, consisting of among others mail and electronics. Takeoff from runway 08 was commenced at 19:41 hours. Four seconds after lifting off the runway, while climbing through a height of 12 m at a speed of 170 km/h, the left hand engine began vibrating. The power lever of the left engine was brought back to idle and later fully forward.
The maximum altitude reached was 16 m. The airplane descended again and banked right. The airspeed decreased to below 120 km/h upon crossing the southern airport boundary. In a 60° right-hand bank the airplane impacted the ground and broke up.
There was a fuel spill, but there was no fire.

The aircraft crashed nose down into some trees, following the failure of the right hand engine shortly after takeoff. The weather was overcast with a light mixture of sleet and snow falling throughout the day. The temperature at the time of the crash was near zero.
