The crew was engaged in a spraying mission near Zafarabad on behalf of the State farm 'Duti'. The crew completed with success nine rotations on cotton field and was preparing for a ninth low pass. The aircraft overflew a powerline at a height of about 40 meters then the crew initiated a turn to the left when the engine apparently lost power. The aircraft banked to the left to an angle of 33° then lost height, struck a concrete pylone and crashed in a field, bursting into flames. The aircraft was totally destroyed and both pilots were killed.
The exact cause of the accident and the possible engine failure could not be determined.
