Pax on board:
Shortly after takeoff from Kamenz Airport, while climbing to a height of 50 meters, the engine failed. The airplane lost height, struck tree tops and crashed. The student pilot Wilfried Stein was slightly injured while the instructor Andreas Barth escaped uninjured.
It is believed that the engine failed during initial climb because the fuel selector was switched off (OFF position).
