Unfallbericht:
The Lockheed C-60 was on a navigator-training mission out of Hondo AAF. Arriving back near Hondo, the weather had deteriorated with a ceiling of 900-1000 feet. The pilot was not able to contact Hondo and continued to San Antonio instead. There he requested a radio-compass let down for Hondo.
During the flight to Hondo the C-60 crashed in a near-vertical attitude.
