KADS crash: diverging left very shortly after liftoff.
YMEN crash: very similar.
The only similarity I see with those two accidents is the left deviation of horizontal tracking. The KADS crash the Kingair is quite clearly banking over to inverted in the pictures available, highlighting an uncontrolled yaw/roll. The YMEN accident the aircraft is maintained wings level showing a significant amount of control prior to impact. I would assume, that if the pilot at YMEN had full right aileron but also left rudder, which would be a coordination exercise in itself, the aircraft would have similarly lost lateral control as well and rolled. This would be only be worsened by actual power loss on the left side, which would have made an uncontrolled roll inevitable, which did not happen.
