Unfallbericht:
Shortly after lifting off the runway, the captain encountered severe jamming of the ailerons. The airplane, in a slight right wing down attitude, was landed back on the grass besides the runway. To avoid a collision with the runway caravan the landing gear was retracted. But of no avail as the left wing hit the caravan and was torn off. The aircraft came to rest and caught fire.
