Shortly after takeoff from Vitória da Conquista Airport, the twin engine airplane encountered difficulties to gain sufficient height. During initial climb, it stalled and crashed about 2 km from the runway end. Both pilots were killed.
The exact cause of the accident could not be determined. However, it is believed that the captain elected to make a low pass over the house of a friend when he lost control of the aircraft.
