Pax on board:
The crew (one instructor and six pilot under training) were engaged in a training flight and departed Jakarta-Halim Perdanakusuma Airport at 1310LT for a local flight consisting of touch-and-go manoeuvres. After a circuit, the pilot-in-command completed a last turn to the left to join the glide for runway 18 when the aircraft stalled and crashed onto several houses located less than one km from the runway threshold. The aircraft was destroyed as well as several houses. Six occupants in the aircraft and four people on the ground were killed while the copilot was critically injured. Unfortunately, he did not survive to his severe injuries and died few hours later at hospital.
It was reported that the approach speed was too low during the last turn, causing the aircraft to stall. The distance between the aircraft and the ground was insufficient to expect recovery.
