Circumstances:
During climb after reaching FL270, crew began to fly a rolling manoeuvre to the right. During the manoeuvre the crew lost control of the aircraft which shot steeply toward the ground and crashed. Both pilots were fatally injured and the airplane disintegrated on impact.
Probable cause:
The accident was due to:
- The crew tried to conduct a flight manoeuvre (roll) which is not part of commercial air transport,
- The crew suffered loss of spatial orientation and subsequently did no longer have the ability to recover the flight attitude.
The following factors contributed:
- The pilots were not trained in aerobatics,
- It was night and therefore there were no visual references,
- The relationship between the two pilots resulted in the departure from professional behavior in regard to crew coordination,
- The airplane was neither designed nor certified for aerobatics.
