Circumstances:
The aircraft was supposed to be delivered to the Spanish Air Forces in Barcelona. Shortly after takeoff from Beauvais-Tillé Airport, the crew encountered an unexpected situation and was forced to attempt an emergency landing. The single engine airplane crash landed in a wheat field, lost its undercarriage and slid for few dozen metres before coming to rest. Both crewmen were uninjured and the aircraft was damaged beyond repair. The exact registration is unknown but should be either F-AQAF, F-AQAG, F-AQAI, F-AQAJ or F-AQAN.
