Pax on board:
Shortly after takeoff from Fort Lauderdale-Bradley Airport, while climbing,both engines stopped. The airplane stalled, dove into the ground and crashed in a huge explosion. Both occupants were killed.
Failure of both engines after takeoff due to a fuel starvation, a mismanagement of fuel and an inadequate inspection of the aircraft prior to takeoff on part of the pilot. It was determined that the fuel selector valve decal was missing and the pilot made erroneous determination of the valve position.
