During the flight from Clermont-Ferrand to Groningen the RH engine suddenly jammed. This made it impossible to feather the propeller of this engine, so a quick diversion was inevitable. The (single engine) landing was made at Bertrix/Jehonville airbase (EBBX) which is a NATO reserve airbase, so not operational.
