Détails:
The Valetta's no.2 propeller had been feathered because the engine suffered from oil problems. Also, the main radio had become unserviceable. Adding to that, smoke was seen coming from beneath the floor in the rear of the cabin. The crew attempted to make an emergency landing at Bromma Airport. Weather was poor and the airplane was not very well lined up with the runway. An overshoot was commenced, but the airplane barely climbed due to the effects of airframe icing. The pilot then made a forced belly landing in a clearing on a high ground ahead.
