Narrative:
When approaching runway 25 at Augsburg, Germany, the aeroplane suddenly stalled at a height of about 50 m first to the right, then to the left and struck the ground with the left wing approximately 130 m before the threshold. In the following crash both the main and the nose landing gear broke off. After approximately 230 m, the aeroplane came to a stop at the left shoulder between runway and taxiway. The aeroplane was severely damaged. One passenger suffered a slight back injury, the other occupants were unhurt.

Probable Cause:

Causes: "The cause for the accident were icing conditions during the approach to Augsburg, leading to wing icing. The flight characteristics of the aeroplane which had not been known and not been documented by then, resulted in unexpected banking and stalling of the aeroplane under icing conditions immediately prior to the lading. The lacking response of the stall warning system prior to the approach to stall had a critical influence on the course of the accident."

Classification:
Icing
Loss of control
