Aircraft flight cycles:
The aircraft was engaged in a bird control mission over the center of Denmark and departed Billund Airport in the afternoon with one passenger and one pilot on board. While returning to Roskilde, on approach to runway 03, the pilot initiated a go-around procedure due to the presence of a slower aircraft on the runway. While climbing, the twin engine aircraft stalled and crashed near runway 03. Both occupants were killed.
The final approach and the go-around procedures were non-standard. The accident was caused by a stall during the climb, and the distance between the aircraft and the ground was insufficient to expect recovery. Weather conditions were not considered as a contributing factor.
