A Savoia-Marchetti SM-75 was crossing the Atlantic Ocean between Natal, Brazil and Ilha do Sal, Cape Verde, when the no. 2, centre engine lost power.
The pilot was forced to ditch the plane in the Atlantic Ocean after having thrown all cargo off the airplane.
Two passengers and eight crew members were on board.

Conflicting sources say the airplane was heading for Cape Verde or Dakar, Senegal.
