Soon after takeoff the aircraft was observed to drift to the right of the runway centreline and disappear into cloud. Subsequently the pilot broadcast a PAN call advising that the right engine had failed. The aircraft was vectored for a return to the airfield where a single engine landing was accomplished. Maintenance checks disclosed that the engine was slow to accelerate and, that at 90% N2, the compressor stalled. A fuel control unit change and rigging check did not clear the problem; therefore the engine was changed. The engine has been placed into long term storage consequently the cause of the problem has yet to be established. A major defect report has been submitted to the Civil Aviation Safety Authority.
