The aircraft suddenly pitched down from an altitude of 1150 feet, went into a vertical dive and crashed on a parking lot in the Kälvesta neighbourhood.
Because the no. 2 and no. 3 engines had been running with reduced power for a long time, the anti-ice system temperature was too low.
PROBABLE CAUSE: Ice on the leading edge of the stabilizer resulted in flow separation and stabilizer stall.
