C182 HA-TUB crashed in Croatia

Two days ago C182 crashed near LDZL (Zagreb’s grass field) during paradropping operation. One person perished, one seriously injured and 3 suffered minor injuries.

It’s Hungarian registered aircraft that’s based in Croatia, and I believe it’s operated by one skydiving club.

It seems that the aircraft suffered engine failure after takeoff and crashed in the woods close to the airport. It’s too early to say the reasons but unofficially I heard about fuel problems (starvation, empty tank selected).

empty tank selected).

A C182 is flown on ‘both’ for takeoff and landing. However, I know that some jump pilots select the outboard tank during a spiral dive after the drop to prevent unporting. Could have forgotten to select ‘both’ (although there should have been fuel in there anyway).

The wreckage has been removed from accident site and it will be analyzed in details. No post-crash fire and pretty much preserved wreck.
