Beschrijving:
While cruising at FL160, 50km NE of Burlington VOR, Boston ARTCC cleared the flight for a 30deg. turn left. The aircraft stabilized and then turned further left. The aircraft broke up and crashed in mountainous terrain. The pilot probably experienced spatial disorientation.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "Failure of the first officer (co-pilot) to maintain control of the aircraft after becoming spatially disoriented, and his exceeding the design stress limits of the aircraft. Factors related to the accident were: the lack of two pilots in the cockpit, darkness, and instrument meteorological conditions (IMC) at flight altitude. "
