The aircraft was climbing out after takeoff when the engine stopped at a height of about 1,100 ft. In the subsequent forced landing, three sheep were killed and the aircraft was badly damaged. It was found that a fuel injector and its unions had become loose and caused a total loss of fuel pressure. It could not be determined how the injector support and its securing screw had come undone as neither were recovered.
