Investigating agency: HCLJ Denmark
The aircraft stalled on takeoff and struck bushes and shrubs before coming to rest. The right hand wing was completely torn off.


Immediately after the aircraft took off, the aircraft was not accelerated to optimal flight speed. The right wing stalled, after which the plane crashed into a stand near the runway.
Contributing causes of the accident:
- There was rime ice on the wings, which led to reduced lift, greater resistance and thus higher stall speed.
- The aircraft was not accelerated as specified in the flight manual.
- The aircraft's stall limit for flights outside the ground effect was higher than 49 KIAS.
- The length of the track and obstacle clearance were not used to achieve sufficient speed
