Circumstances:
The crew was engaged in a local tests flight at Gavião Peixoto-Embraer Unidade Airport on this first prototype built in 2015 and flying under the Brazilian Air Force colour scheme. Following several circuits, the crew completed a landing on runway 20. After touchdown, the airplane was unable to stop within the remaining distance and overran. While contacting soft ground, it lost its undercarriage and came to rest few dozen meters further. All three crew members escaped uninjured while the aircraft was considered as damaged beyond repair.
Probable cause:
Despite the fact that the aircraft sustained significant damage, CENIPA classified the event as an "Incident" and on August 5, 2018, reported that closed the investigation with no final report being issued.
