The MH-46 Eclipse aircraft crashed crashed into a forest, approximately 0.8 km north of LKFR. The pilot was performing a check flight from LKFR. After take-off, at an altitude of about 30 m, the pilot noticed a drop in engine power. With the intention of making an emergency landing, he directed the aircraft to a grain field, in front of which there was a stand of trees. A frontal impact occurred with the top of one of the trees, which was located in the flight axis in front of the intended emergency landing site. Shortly after impact with the ground, the aircraft caught fire. The air accident resulted in the pilot’s serious injury and destruction of the ultralight aircraft.

The cause of the accident was loss of engine power, probably due to overflooding of the engine with fuel (very rich mixture) combined with low operating temperature of the engine cylinder heads. This led to the loss of speed and subsequent crash of the UL aircraft.
A contributing cause of the accident was the effect of tailwind and the probable setting of the flaps to an angle other than that appropriate for take-off.
