Pax on board:
The crew was completing the 92nd test flight of the IAI Arava certification program. In flight, control was lost and the airplane crashed in a desert area located near Tulkarm, Palestine. Three crew members were killed while a fourth occupant was seriously injured. The aircraft was destroyed.
It is believed that the accident was the result of a 'structural failure' of the wings that were torn off in flight.
