Détails:
A Douglas DC-2, operated by KLM, was destroyed when it impacted terrain near Beert, Belgium. All fifteen on board were killed.
The aircraft, named "Flamingo", operated on a regular passenger service from Amsterdam, Netherlands to Paris, France with an en route stop at Brussel, Belgium. At Brussel-Haren Airport two passengers deplaned and nine passengers boarded for the next leg to Paris.
The flight took off about 10:30 hours and climbed to an altitude of about 1200 meters. It entered a descent at an increasing rate until the aircraft impacted a field.
The cause of the crash could not be established. It was considered very likely that a fire of unknown origin had developed in the cabin prior to the accident. Several parts of the aircraft were found at a considerable distance from the main wreckage. An emergency exit hatch was found at 3 km from the main impact site.
