The Beechcraft 100 King Air took off from Goi‚nia Airport, Brazil bound for Buriti Alegre. During the downwind leg for a landing on runway 05, the pilot tried to select the flaps twice, but the systems circuit breakers jumped. The pilot decided to land without using flaps. On short final, the aircraft lost height and the main landing gear impacted the perimeter fence, 15 meters from the runway threshold. On impact, the landing gear was torn off and the aircraft due to the application of power by the pilot, flew for 500 meters. The aircraft touched down without landing gear and slid on the runway to its full stop when a fire started which consumed the airplane.

Probable Cause:

Contributing factors (translated from Portuguese):
- There may have been a failure in the pilot's training process, as he performed a landing without flaps and decided to come in low, without the appropriate speed increase, procedures contrary to those taught in flight schools.
- The pilot thought he should carry out a landing with a small angle to land on the threshold, regardless of the increase in speed required to perform landing without flaps, which he led the impact with the fence before the runway.
