The crew was engaged in a test flight after one of the engine was changed. Shortly after takeoff, while in initial climb, both engines flamed out simultaneously. The captain decided to return for an emergency landing but the aircraft lost height, hit the roofs of two wooded houses and crashed few km from the airport. A crew member was killed while four other occupants were seriously injured. The aircraft was destroyed.
It appears that the flight mechanic made a mistake in handling the fuel management system after liftoff, causing both engines to stop.
