SummaryThe plane developed trouble in the No. 4 engine and the takeoff was aborted and the plane returned to the gate. It was decided to continue the ferry flight to Zurich on three engines. As the aircraft started its take-off roll the nose yawed to the right. This was corrected by retarding no.1 engine power. The aircraft rotated at 134kts with 27deg. Flaps. While climbing, the aircraft banked 4 to 6 degrees to the right and the airspeed dropped to 10kts below V2. The plane then contacted some tree tops, banked 10 to 15 degrees and crashed. Unexpected early loss of external visual reference after take-off and loss of directional control during transition from visual to instrument flying. Windshear.
