A Commander 114B crashed into trees at Fur Airfield (EKFU),
Two occupants were killed and two sustained serious injuries. The aircraft was destroyed by a post-impact fire.
A third occupant died in December 2020 as a result of the injuries sustained in the crash.

1. The pilot was probably so focused on his conscious decision to start a tailwind takeoff on runway 12, supported by the perceived degree of runway slope, that it mentally overshadowed the operational consequences of an increased starting distance.
2. A required longer take-off distance than the available take-off distance led to the collision of the aircraft with nearby trees and to the accident.
