Narrative:
Braathens Flight 239 turned some 10 NM ahead of the ILS-procedure for runway 06 while having private communications regarding Christmas with the ACC-
controller. The F-28 also descended below MSA and lowered the gear and flaps as it was established on the ILS. It then flew into the woods more than 4 NM off course in darkness and fog. Possible cause of the accident was either a controlled short-cut towards the ILS or/incl. false ILS-signals in that area.
