Narrative:
During takeoff from an airstrip in the Masai Mara Park, an impala ran across the runway. To avoid a collision the pilot got the plane airborne. Because the airspeed was too low to climb away, the Let nearly stalled. The pilot put the nose down to gain speed, but the airplane struck the ground.
