On take-off from Runway 05 at Strasbourg, as the pilot turned left to line up on the runway, he confused the left hand runway edge lights for the centre line lights and began his take-off roll along the left side of the runway. The aircraft collided with a number of lights and both propellers sustained damage.

Earlier in the day the pilot had flown from Linz, Austria to Melun (Paris) via Strasbourg and spent the day on business in Paris before returning. Pilot fatigue was determined to have been a contributing factor in the accident.
