A Short SC.7 Skyvan 3M-400 was destroyed when it crashed near Piotrków Trybunalski-Bujny Airport (EPPT), Poland.
Both occupants died.

On the 12th flight of the day, after dropping skydivers, the plane began to descend for landing back at EPPT. On final approach the pilot reported one and a half minutes to the threshold of RWY 03. The flight coordinator issued a clearance for landing, which was acknowledged by the pilot.
Around 14:16 the plane started to climb, then slowed down, and after changing direction it entered a dive and collided with the ground. As a result of the collision, the pilot and passenger died on the spot, and the plane was destroyed.
