Beschrijving:
The DC-3 departed Le Bourget Airport at 07:50 on a flight to test a new type of air scoop, fitted to one of the engines. At 09:25 witnesses saw the aircraft break up in flight and crash.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "Abnormal flight maneuver made when the crew experienced difficulty in resuming normal flight on the two engines. Overspeed, reduction of pitch or difficulty in restarting the engine may have created a dangerous situation and caused the aircraft to stall in dissymmetrical flight, thus subjecting the airframe to stresses accompanied by buffeting which was either alternating or exceeded the design limits of the structure and caused the tail-plane to break off."
