The Douglas DC-3, named "Specht", crashed immediately after takeoff. Three crew members and one passenger died. The co-pilot and seven passengers survived.

A connecting rod in the no.1 engine had failed, causing a fuel fed fire. The pilot cut the fuel flow to the engine, but the aircraft was unable to gain height on one engine. It impacted terrain.
