3.2. Causes
The probable cause of the accident is considered to be a sudden incapacitation of the pilot at the controls of the aircraft by a loss of consciousness induced by the effect of a high level of vertical acceleration of the manoeuvres to which he was subjected.
The pilot's tolerance to vertical acceleration could be impaired by his particular physical conditions and age, as well as by the transient situation of digestion of recent food intake.
