The Fiat G.212PW operated on a passenger flight from Milan Airport, Italy to Brussel Airport, Belgium.
The flight contacted the regional control centre at Beauvais, Belgium at 11:50 hours. Visibility was poor with a cloud base at approx. 100 m. In these conditions the flight crew were not able to find the airport. The crew apparently did locate the private airfield of Keerbergen. The aircraft circled the airfield and until it crashed in a forest. A fire erupted.

Probable Cause:

CONCLUSIONS (translated from French):
Adverse weather conditions and failures in the operation of radiocommunication and radionavigation equipment have led the captain to decide an emergency landing on a makeshift airfield.
To land at the beginning of the runway and not losing sight, the pilot flew a steep turn by tilting the left wing of the plane so that the roll angle put the aircraft at stall speed at low altitude.
