No.1 engine birdstrike (Sparrowhawk) during takeoff (just past V1). The prop autofeathered during lift-off. This caused the aircraft to turn left and crash in a cornfield.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The failure of the captain to follow the prescribed engine-out procedures during instrument meteorological conditions, which allowed the aircraft to decelerate into a flight regime from which he could not recover. Contributing to the accident were inadequate cockpit coordination and discipline."
