Douglas DC-4 "Amana" took off from Guildford (Perth) runway 29 at 21:50 for a flight to Melbourne via Adelaide. After departure the number four engine had been shut down by the flight crew and subsequently the remaining three engines had all failed for indeterminate periods. The crew turned left in an attempt to return to the airport. In a 15 degree turn the aircraft barely cleared a ridge line, struck a tree 30 feet off the ground and ploughed into a downward slope.
One passenger initially survived the accident, but died six days later.
