The corporate jet aircraft was owned by The Beecham Group and operated by Autair International on a crew training flight for the first officer to complete his conversion onto the HS-125.
During a local flight from Luton Airport exercises were flown in the area, which were to be concluded with a simulated engine failure on take-off, followed by an asymmetric approach and single-engined landing. It climbed to around 300 feet before it descended and crashed onto the roof of the Vauxhall Motors factory, about half a mile west from the end of runway 26.

Probable Cause:

The accident was caused by an almost total reduction of engine power. The reason for which was not determined.
