During a training mission an electric failure coming from a bolt not fully tight in the electric box stops: fuel transfert, engine régulation, radio/inter-com transmissions, and all gear extended indication. After a missed approach, due to low fuel alarm, low speed and impossibility to returne to St Dizier runway the very low altitude ejection is decided. Aircraft crashed 500m, south of Valcourt near Chemin de la Grange Brulée, Haute-Marne, France, both crew (Lt. Sable and ADJ Grandclement) ejected safely an land after 15/20 seconds 100m from aircraft burning wreck.
