The flight was conducted with two pilots on board. Both had Training Pilot licences. One of them was a Hellenic Civil Aviation (HCAA) Employee, Pilot Certified Flight Training and Examiner. The scope of the flight was the revalidation of the other pilot as Flight Training Pilot and as Examiner. The HCAA Examiner occupied the left-hand seat and acted as Pilot Flying (PF).
During landing, the aircraft bounced after a hard landing on the threshold of runway 26L and after gaining some altitude veered to the left moving in a southern direction and crashed into an ISOBOX construction used as Airforce Pilots Flight Crew Rest Facility, which was completely destroyed and finally the aircraft was immobilized with severe damages.
Both wings of the aircraft, were detached from the fuselage. Both pilots were not injured.

The high rate of descent of 1.000 ft/min below 100 AGL before the hard landing, subsequent bounce and stall of the aircraft, are the causes of the accident.
