Circumstances:
Crew was returning to its base following an ambulance flight from Reykjavik. On final approach, pilots were instructed by ATC to make a go around and to follow a holding circuit in the west of the airport due to a Fokker ready to depart. Few minutes later, while attempting a second approach, crew completed a left turn to align with runway when it stalled. Left wing hit the ground and the aircraft crashed in flames in a field located 4.4 km northwest of the airport. All three occupants were seriously injured and evacuated to a local hospital. Few hours later, a pilot and the doctor died from their injuries.
