Sad view!
I made the last good landing of this aircraft prior to the damage. I had a engine fuel pump failure, managed to bring the aircraft safely down and sent to the hangar for engine replacement.
Following the engine replacement, during the check flight the throttle got stuck in the landing phase. The pilot forced the aircraft to land but he couldn't turn off the engine, run out of the runway and eventually stopped in a ditch, 1 km from the runway end.
