The Global 5000 jet, attached to the Executive Transport Wing of the German Air Force (named Flugbereitschaft des Bundesministeriums der Verteidigung) had undergone heavy maintenance at Berlin-Schönefeld Airport, Germany. The torque tube assembly of the aircraft's controls had been wrongly installed, causing a flight control reversal.
The aircraft departed Schönefeld Airport on a Functional Check Flight and the flight crew soon noticed flight control problems. The aircraft entered steep turns and was exposed to forces of up to +5G.
The crew managed to return to Schönefeld Airport where an emergency landing was carried out.

In September 2019 it was announced that the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
