Circumstances:
Crew was performing a night postal flight from Paris-Roissy-CDG Airport to Dole-Jura Airport on behalf of Europe Airpost. Shortly after take off, while climbing to 1,000 feet, left propeller detached and impacted the left part of the fuselage, causing a large hole. Crew declared an emergency and landed safely less than ten minutes later. Aircraft was parked on apron, both pilots were unhurt but aircraft was later considered as damaged beyond repair. The propeller was found in an open field in Mesnil-Amelot, near the airport. Nobody on ground was injured.
Probable cause:
The initial examinations of the propeller blade revealed a fatigue failure on the retaining bolt. Furthermore, the propeller blade, when passing through the airplane’s fuselage, cut the electrical power supply cables to the flight recorders. As a result, no data from the event was recorded after the cables were cut. More detailed examinations will be undertaken on the propeller blade.
