Shortly after takeoff, while in initial climb, both engines stopped simultaneously. The airplane stalled and crashed near the runway end. The aircraft was destroyed by impact forces and a post crash fire and the pilot was killed.
Inadequate preflight preparation on part of the pilot who failed to realize there was no fuel in the tanks prior to takeoff, causing both engines to fail after rotation.
