Narrative:The flight encountered bad weather (reduced visibility) at FL100 en route to Belluno. The pilot requested to continue in visual contact with the ground. Thick fog caused the pilot to lose visual contact with the ground while flying through the valley near the Fadalto Pass. The Twin Otter collided with the Colcanin Hill a little later.
