Captain / Total hours on type:
The crew was involved in a local test flight and the twin engine airplane was used for an electronic test project mission. For such program, a special authorisation was granted to use the aircraft in an overweight configuration. After liftoff, during initial climb, the airplane encountered difficulties to gain height and its speed was too low. It stalled, struck the ground and crashed in flames. All four occupants were slightly injured and the aircraft was destroyed.
Premature liftoff on part of the pilot-in-command and failure to maintain flying speed.
