Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
Ditched following engine failure. The airplane sank after ten minutes; the pilot was rescued.

According to the established facts, during the analysis of the engine, it can be concluded with a very high probability that the engine failure occurred due to material fatigue, breakage and complete destruction. The engine of the aircraft remained in the company "Franz" and therefore the Investigator for Aircraft Accidents of the Republic of Croatia did not have the opportunity to submit the remains of the material for analysis to the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture to determine with 100% certainty whether material fatigue occurred.
