The airplane took off from Portugal with destination Morocco. While on final, one kilometre from the aerodrome near Tit Mellil (N3335'49.03"/W00727'53.11"), the aircraft engine produced a strange noise followed by vibrations. The airplane could not land and crashed.
The pilot did not follow the engine failure procedure and made a tight turn ,the plane went into a stall (due to high temperature that day :47C and therefore low air density);The plane fell almost vertically and crashed into the ground with his nose what explains the total destruction of the plane; there was no fire.
