Beschrijving:
Iberia flight IB062 left Málaga (AGP) at 19:30 UTC on a flight to London-Heathrow (LHR). The weather at the time was slightly misty with intermittent drizzle but there was reasonable visibility. While on approach to Heathrow, the Caravelle descended through the assigned level of FL60. It flew into the southern slope of Black Down Hill. It initially struck trees in the grounds of Black Down House, then continued for hundreds of yards, passing across a meadow where it killed 65 grazing sheep. It then broke through a large hedge and parts of the aircraft fell off destroying a garage, and damaging parts of the roof of Upper Black Down House as the aircraft disintegrated.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The accident was due to the aircraft having continued to descend through its assigned flight level down to the ground. No reason could be established for the continued descent."
