More pics and data. Link in article to yesterday's report. Also on RTE,

It looks close to trees, and possibly just short of a fence. Said to be engine failure. Heavy landing due to obstacles??? Undercariage broken, one blade of 3-blade prop undamaged, one with tip broken off, possible without rotation.
