The Junkers Ju-52/3m passenger plane, named "Hermann Stache" was destroyed when it crashed into a mountain (Skorvefjell) in bad weather. Three crew and twelve passengers were killed.

Radio contact with the ground was lost and the crew initiated a descent when they assumed to be near Oslo. They descended below clouds in order to obtain visual contact with the ground. It collided with a mountain at an altitude of 1355 m.

Probable Cause:

Investigators concluded that the radio equipment of the flight had failed.
