The pilot was not qualified to fly during darkness.
The medical investigation has shown that the pilot had two disorders,
each one of which was disqualifying for a pilotís license.
The accident was caused by the pilot losing control of the aircraft during
flight in IMC. Contributory factors were, that
-the weather situation was difficult,
-the pilotís time to prepare for the flight was insufficient,
-the navigation system was in all probability misaligned,
-the pilot distrusted the flight instruments,
-the aircraft was overloaded and tail-heavy,
-the pilot probably felt pressured into carrying out the flight and that
-the pilotís medical condition may have reduced his capacity.
