Circumstances:
Aircraft was on its way from Athens-Elefterios Venizelos, in Greece, to Rome with three pax and a crew of three on board. While overflying Adriatic Sea at cruise level, pilot informed ATC about burn smell on board (possible smoke) and elected to divert to Brindisi. Upon arrival at Brindisi, weather conditions were poor with rain showers and strong lateral winds. In the mean time, the principal runway 14/32 (3,330 meters long) was closed to traffic due to works in progress. After landing on runway 23, aircraft skidded, veered off runway and lost its right main gear before coming to rest. Three occupants were evacuated to local hospital with minor injuries while the aircraft was damaged beyond repair due to severe damage on right wing and right part of fuselage. Brand new, it was delivered this year and totalised 100 flying hours only.
