Following left engine failure at or near V2, the aircraft rolled to the left and contacted the ground beside the runway. The aircraft levelled off on the ground, took off again and rolled left into inverted position before impact.

Probable Cause:

The cause could not be determined. This was a flight check. It is assumed that the pilot cut the power on the left engine at or near V1. The co-pilot probably rotated before VR and lost control. No pre-impact failure or malfunction was found.

Loss of control
