Shortly after takeoff from Nakhon Sawan-Takhli AFB, while climbing to a height of about 150 feet, the pilot contacted ATC and declared an emergency following a loss of engine power. He elected to return for an emergency landing when the aircraft went out of control and crashed onto a hangar located near the airport, bursting into flames. All seven occupants were killed, among them two photographers and one mechanic who were taking part to a reconnaissance mission in view to prepare an incoming air race in Thailand.
