Crew on board:
Pax on board:
The crew was completing a local training at RAF Manby, Lincolnshire. On final approach with an engine voluntarily inoperative, the crew decided to make a go around when the airplane stalled and crashed in a field located 2,2 km east of Louth, short of the airbase. All three crew members were evacuated safely while the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
It was determined that the remaining engine lost power when the crew elected to make a go around with one engine already inoperative. In such conditions, the airplane stalled and crashed.
