The aircraft drifted to the left shortly after takeoff from Runway 02. The left wheel struck a fence on the side of the runway, causing the aircraft to hit the ground.

The pilot stated that the location of the fence on the edge of the narrow 18 m strip, and the variable wind conditions, contributed to the accident.
