The private aircraft was en route from Stavanger airport Sola to Tønsberg airport Jarlsberg when clouds made it necessary to turn back to maintain visual references. When turning, the aircraft entered clouds with severe icing and turbulence. Control was lost as the pilot in command, who had no experience with instrument flying, suffered from vertigo and as ice built up on the wing and most likely made the aircraft stall prematurely. A probable total loss with a fatal outcome was prevented by the pilot's activation of the aircraft's rescue parachute. The aircraft came down in rough terrain north of Ådneram in Sirdal with significant structural damage, but none of the four occupants sustained injury.
The opinion of the Accident Investigation Board Norway is that insufficient planning ahead of departure and too little distance to rapidly growing clouds (towering cumulus) were contributing factors to the accident.
