According to the Kenyan investigators, a G-159 Gulfstream I accident at Busia in January 2003 was caused by the fact that the crew attempted to take-off on a runway which was too short given the airplane's weight. It was also discovered that both the captain's as well as the airplane's papers had been tampered with. Uncertified parts were fitted onto the aircraft and maintenance personnel for the aircraft were not trained and licensed. (East African Standard)
