A fixed-wing ultralight aircraft with two pilots of British nationality aboard took off from a private airfield at near Marim-Quelfes in Olhão on a local flight for proficiency training.
After performing two touch-and-goes on an unprepared runway, the pilot made a final landing to disembark the other pilot.
He returned to takeoff from runway 18, with a left climbing turn.
The pilot then lost directional control of the aircraft and entered a stall, causing the aircraft to impact terrain.

Weather: clear sky, temperature 25º C, wind calm from the South with more than 10 km of visibility.
