After takeoff from Son Bonet Airport at Palma, the crew reported his altitude at 3,000 feet and obtained the permission to continue to 9,000 feet. About two minutes later, the airplane struck the slope of Alfabia Peak located 20 km north of the airfield. The aircraft was destroyed and all five occupants have been killed. At the time of the accident, the visibility was reduced by night.
