Narrative:
Disintegrated in midair at 19.000 feet over Jevington, near Eastbourne, Sussex, killing all nine persons on board. No cause for the accident was attributed, as there was not enough wreckage recovered to identify a cause. However, the AAIB report suggested a total electrical failure, which would have caused the autopilot to disengage, and the aircraft going into a terminal and unrecoverable spin
