Circumstances:
Crew was performing a positioning flight from Buenos Aires-Ezeiza-Ministro Pistarini Airport to Buenos Aires-Aeroparque-Jorge Newbury Airport. Shortly after take off from runway 17, climb gradient was small and landing gear were retracted at a very low altitude. Left wing stalled and hit the runway surface. Aircraft hit the ground, skidded few yards, overran runway and came to rest in a field. Both pilots were uninjured while the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
Probable cause:
Control was lost shortly after rotation due to premature retraction of landing gear, small climb gradient and low speed. For unknown reason, crew switched off the Stall Alarm System before departure. Thus, they could not be informed that aircraft was in a stall condition after take off.
