On a night approach to Hanover-Langenhagen Airport, the aircraft was unstable. The crew initiated a go-around procedure when the aircraft stalled and crashed short of runway 09R. The aircraft was destroyed and both pilots were killed.
It was determined that cargo shifted at the time the crew initiated a go-around procedure. At that time, flaps were down at 11° instead of 26°.
