A person who had previously held a Commercial Pilot Licence gained entry to the aircraft and was able to start the engines. The aircraft then apparently rolled forward and collided with a disused fuel tanker. At about 0710 hours in the morning the regular pilot arrived to find the aircraft embedded in the side of the tanker with the engines still operating at low power. The person was subsequently located, by police, asleep on the side of a nearby road.
