Beschrijving:
The Lockheed Constellation was on a flight from Paris to Vienna via Munich and departed Munich at 19:58 GMT. After an ILS let-down the pilot started to make a visual circuit . In the base leg turn the aircraft crashed 2200 m short of the runway 30 threshold.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "It is possible to establish that there was no question of a technical malfunction, and that the flight crew lost sight of the ground in the base leg turn, at which time the aircraft adopted an abnormal attitude for this manoeuvre which led to the crash. Presumably the accident could have been avoided through immediate discontinuation of the approach procedure (immediate changeover to climb - heading for radio beacon OEW) following loss of visibility."
