The Dakota approached Oslo in weather conditions including 10/10 cloud with base at 1000 feet, under which visibility was 10 miles. On approach the aircraft flew into trees on the eastern face of the 2182 feet high Mistberget mountain at 2040 feet asl, 12 miles north of the airport.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "An error by the pilot in that he began his let-down too soon, due to inexperience of radio range flying coupled with inadequate aircraft equipment."
