The Boeing 720B took off for a training flight from Frankfurt International Airport (FRA), Germany at 09:33. The crew reported reaching 13.000 feet at 09:38. The IFR flight schedule was abandoned and the crew continued VFR to carry out some training manoeuvres between VOR Kitzingen and the Roethenbach beacon.

The Boeing became overstressed, disintegrated and crashed in flames between Petersdorf and Forst.
