Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
Takeoff was attempted without releasing the parking brakes. Takeoff was aborted but the Falcon overran runway 24, struck an embankment and caught fire.

PROBABLE CAUSES (translated from French):
The accident was due to a late decision to abort a take-off with the parking brake on.
Contributing to the accident:
- the incomplete application of the checklist, which did not allow the crew to identify the anomaly during take-off or taxiing.
- the bad weather conditions, which led the crew to concentrate on maintaining the axis to the detriment of other checks, and did not allow them to see early enough the landmarks likely to draw their attention to the insufficient acceleration of the aircraft.
- the position of the "BRAKE" light outside the pilot's normal visual circuit on take-off.
