All 12 occupants were able to walk away with minor injuries when an Antonov An-2 crash-landed near Berlin shortly after take-off on 10 August.
The single-engined biplane (registration D-FWJC) was being operated by Berlin-based air taxi and sightseeing flight company Air Tempelhof. It was departing from Bienenfarm airfield, approximately 50km northwest of the capital, bound for Heringsdorf, a holiday resort on the Baltic Sea.
Shortly after take-off from the grass runway, the aircraft lost power, but there was no engine failure, says Germany's air investigation authority BFU. The pilot landed the aircraft in a nearby field, but it overturned.
Five people sustained minor injuries, say police, but all 11 passengers and the pilot were able to leave the aircraft unaided.
BFU has begun an inquiry into the accident.
