In this accident, it is considered highly probable that the Captain used the Aircraft's auxiliary fuel pump during the approach for landing, which produced an excessively rich fuel/air ratio and the eventual engine stall, and this forced the Captain to make an forced landing, during which the Aircraft was destroyed as it collided with objects on the ground.
With regard to the use of the auxiliary fuel pump by the Captain during the approach for landing, it is considered highly probable that the following factors contributed to this action: Safety information from the manufacturer had not been thoroughly distributed to the staff of the Company and this prevented the staff from fully understanding the correct use of the auxiliary fuel pump of the Aircraft; information on the problem that had previously occurred with the Aircraft was communicated only verbally and incorrectly; and a control operation not specified in the Operations Guideline was casually implemented.
