The KLM Constellation named "Roermond" was on a flight from Batavia (Jakarta) back to Amsterdam. After an intermediate stop at Cairo the airplane departed for the final leg to Amsterdam. It was flying at an altitude of about 4500 metres along the Italian coast when it lost control. The tail section reportedly separated from the fuselage and the Constellation broke up in flight. The wreckage fell into the sea just off Bari.
