Pax on board:
The crew (two pilots and two technicians) departed d’Uherské Hradiště-Kunovice Airport for a local test flight on this third L-410 prototype. While cruising at a relative low altitude, the pilot-in-command lost control of the airplane that dove into the ground and crashed in a field located in Nedakonice, few km from the airfield. The aircraft was destroyed and all four occupants were killed.
It is believed that the loss of control occurred when the tail separated in flight after severe actions were performed on the rudder by the pilot.
