Pax on board:
Shortly after takeoff from Olkiombo Airstrip, while in initial climb, the aircraft stalled and crashed past the runway end. The aircraft was destroyed and both pilots were killed. They were completing a positioning flight to the Mara Shika Airfield, in the Maasai Mara National Reserve, to pick up passengers.
Loss of control during initial climb after the aircraft stalled because the crew forgot to select flaps in an appropriate angle for takeoff.
