Crew on board:
Pax on board:
The crew was completing a local training flight at RAF Little Rissington. After takeoff, while climbing to a height of 400 feet, both engines stopped simultaneously. The crew declared an emergency and the airplane stalled and struck the ground. On impact, the undercarriage were torn off and the airplane slid for several yards before coming to rest in a pasture. Both crew members escaped with minor injuries while the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
The stall and subsequent accident was the consequence of a double engine failure for undetermined reasons.
