3.2 Cause of Accident
3.2.1 The probable cause of the accident was that the aircraft was stalled, then it prematurely hit the ground, owing to the extension of full flap when in ground proximity without engine power.

3.2.2 The first contributory causal factor was the contact with the first fir-tree, which change the direction of the airplane's heading towards the perimeter fence.

3.2.2 The second contributory cause of the accident was the engine's problem of high temperature in flight, which disabled the continuation of flight and demanded for the emergency landing.
