The Vickers Viscount operated on a repositioning flight from Manchester to Edinburgh, U.K. On board were two pilots and two flight attendants.
It was pre-planned that the flight would be used to carry out some training and that an engine failure would be simulated during takeoff. Shortly after takeoff the no.4 engine was feathered and the aircraft yawed sharply to starboard, then leveled off and then entered a steeper climb whilst turning and rolling to starboard. The aircraft struck the ground inverted.

Probable Cause:

The accident was due to a loss of control following a simulated engine failure on takeoff.
