Narrative:
The aircraft took off on runway 34 of the Merida-Royanejos (LEMY) airfield for a local flight. According to the pilot's statement, when the aircraft was in its initial climb, there was an abrupt drop in engine speed, accompanied by strong vibrations. The passenger, with more flight experience and a much greater knowledge of the environment than the pilot, agreed with him to take the controls of the aircraft and delayed the gas lever until the intensity of the vibrations was reduced to a level that he considered acceptable, while initiating a smooth turn to the right to return to the runway and land in the opposite direction to the takeoff. The area where he made contact was waterlogged, which caused the nose leg to break immediately. The aircraft continued to move, supported by the nose and both legs of the main gear, until it came to a halt after travelling a little over 50 metres. The two occupants were unharmed and were able to leave the aircraft by their own means.
