Summary

After takeoff at approximately 150 ft above ground level, smoke began to enter the cabin. This was immediately followed by a popping sound and the right engine failed. The pilot shut down the engine, made a Mayday call, and landed the aircraft safely on the departure runway. Later examination of the engine found that the compressor section had moved rearward and seized. Initial inspection suggests a failure of a compressor bearing support. The engine was later removed and forwarded to the manufacturers overhaul facility in the United States of America.
