The no. 2 engine was feathered after takeoff for a single-engine bad weather circuit training. While turning right at the end of the downwind leg, the right wingtip struck high tension wires and a tree. The aircraft then impacted a house and caught fire.

The cause of the accident was attributed to several errors committed by the instructor and the trainee pilots during the flight due to the consumption of alcohol by them before the flight which affected their concentration and impaired their judgement and skill.
