Pax on board:
The crew was completing a spraying mission against mosquito in the regon of Jagodina. Following a 50-minutes successful mission, the crew encountered engine problems. The engine started to vibrate, smoke emanated and an oil leak occurred. The crew elected to divert to the nearest airport when oil spread onto the windshield. The crew lost all visual contact with the ground and attempted an emergency landing when the aircraft impacted a tree with its left wing and crashed in a field. All three occupants evacuated uninjured and the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
