Unfallbericht:
Crashed shortly after takeoff from Gao, Mali. The airplane operated on a flight from Abidjan to Nice.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "An untimely contact with the ground after a take-off at night without any visible reference beyond the runway lights. The contact was due to an unsuspected loss of altitude. The reasons for this poor altitude control are not well-known; they may be attributed to the pilot's state of fatigue or to an occurrence, perhaps of minor significance in the cockpit which distracted the pilot's attention."
