Circumstances:
The single engine aircraft was starting its 13th rotation of the day with eleven occupants on board (seven skydivers, three tourists and one pilot). Shortly after rotation from the grassy runway of Casale Monferrato-Francesco Cappa Airfield, while in initial climb, it appears the pilot encountered engine problem. The aircraft hit a hedge and few trees before coming to rest in a wooded area located past the runway end. All eleven occupants were injured, some of them seriously, and the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
