On a VORTAC approach to runway 18 at Dijon Longvic, at night, the aircraft struck the ground on a carwash area located three nautical miles from the threshold of runway 18. The aircraft crashed into a lamppost, came to a halt and caught fire immediately.
The accident was probably caused by:
Performing an approach procedure that was initiated precipitously and incompletely applied, the confusion between the luminous references located in an urban area and the runway lighting, at the moment of transition to visual flight.
Time and financial pressures that may have led the pilot to a late change in the choice of procedure and to shorten the arrival path probably contributed to the accident.
