Circumstances:
At 2146LT on 01AUG2012, crew completed an ambulance flight from Oviedo-Asturias Airport to Porto with a medical team and a crew of two on board, on behalf of the National Transplant Organisation. During the night, crew was awaiting at Porto to bring back the medical team to Oviedo but the medical operation took more time than expected. Due to rest time, crew left Porto at 0545LT for a short flight to its base and received two minutes after take off the authorization to complete an ILS approach to runway 17. Following a last weather briefing, crew started the descent and obtained the permission to land at 0615LT. Two minutes later, while on a correct configuration for landing (gear lowered and flaps down), aircraft hit tree tops and crashed in a wooded area located 1,600 meters short of runway 17. While the aircraft was destroyed, both pilots aged 35 & 37 were killed.
Probable cause:
According to CIAIAC, the airplane was correctly configured for the approach and the collision occurred in a normal attitude. At the time of the accident, visibility was estimated at 4 km with patches of clouds at 600 feet on approach. As a result, Board concluded the accident has been assimilated to a controlled flight into terrain (CFIT). More investigation should be conducted to complete this event.

Circumstances:
The aircraft started taking off from runway 27 threshold. Upon reaching a speed deemed proper by the pilot for rotation, the pilot noticed that the aircraft was not taking off, so he decided to abort the takeoff. While trying to stop the aircraft, it exited via the left side of the runway near the end, breaking through the fence that surrounds the aerodrome before coming to rest in trees. While all ten occupants were uninjured, the aircraft was damaged beyond repair with both wings sheared off.
Probable cause:
Whenever this aircraft is doing a short-field takeoff with a high weight, it is recommended that the flaps be set to their takeoff position of 20°. The evidence indicates that the pilot was attempting to take off on runway 27 and forgot to place the flaps in the takeoff position (20°).
