According to the pilot, during approach for landing on RWY 33 at Bingelela Airstrip, he realised that the runway was too short, and the aircraft was too fast; he then elected to abort landing and opted to execute a go-around. The pilot stated that while flying in the direction of the mountain during a go-around, he noticed that the aircraft was not climbing optimally, and was, therefore, unable to clear (fly over) the mountain. This resulted in the aircraft crash-landing on the mountain.
