During the take-off roll, a problem with the landing gear developed that resulted in the crew not being able to keep the aircraft on the runway. As the aircraft left the paved surface of the runway the nose landing gear failed to cause the aircraft nose to be damaged and both the propellers to strike the ground. This caused damage to both propellers

The exact extent of the damage and the exact cause of the accident have not been made public by the Forca Aérea Brasileira. The Embraer P-95B Bandeirulha is Maritime patrol version for the Brazilian Air Force of the Embraer 110 Bandeirante, a Brazilian general purpose 15–21 passenger twin-turboprop light transport aircraft designed by Embraer for military and civil use. "Bandeirulha" is a nickname – junction of the names "Bandeirante" and "Patrulha" (Patrol). Internally it carries sea patrol radar, an inertial navigation system and Thomson-CSF passive ECM equipment. Underwing pylons can carry air-to-surface rockets, target markers and chaff dispensers.
