The aircraft undershot, struck a tree short of the intended landing area and, with the starboard wing torn off by tree impact it swung through 180 degrees and crashed to the ground in a flat attitude some 12 metres beyond the tree. As the pilot assisted the passengers to vacate the aircraft a fire, which was initially apparent in the area of the starboard wing root, developed rapidly.
