Shortly after take off from Krems-Langenlois Airport, the single engine airplane encountered difficulties to gain height. Both right wings struck a tree and the aircraft crashed in an open field located about 200 metres from the runway. The aircraft was damaged beyond repair while all 12 skydivers and the pilot escaped uninjured.
Loss of control at lift off because the CofG was after the rear limit due to a poor flight preparation and a wrong seating of the skydivers and their equipment in the main cabin.
