Pax on board:
After takeoff from runway 30, while climbing to an altitude of 300 feet, the airplane lost height and descended until it crashed 1,6 km past the runway end. All three crew members were injured and the airplane was damaged beyond repair.
It was determined that the loss of control was the consequence of an overloaded aircraft. The total weight was well above the MTOW.
