The DC-3 took off from Mohanbari at 09:02 for a supply dropping flight to Damroh. Last contact with the flight was at 10:28 while over Pasighat, awaiting the weather conditions to improve in the Damroh area. The aircraft was later reported to have crashed on the side of a hill.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "While manoeuvring at a low height in mountainous terrain during a supply dropping mission the port wing grazed the side of a hill thus causing the aircraft to slew and crash. A contributory factor might have been the mismanagement of the fuel system which caused temporary loss of engine power and height."
