Descripción:
The Constellation crashed during an ILS approach to Burbank-Lockheed Air Terminal runway 07 in adverse weather conditions (fog) in a residential industrial area, 1,25 miles W of the airport. It appeared that the captain had coronary artery disease sufficient in severity to have caused partial or complete incapacitation or even death, particularly during a sequence of stressful or anxious moments. A review of Company training records indicated that the first officer had not adequately demonstrated his proficiency in the execution of an ILS approach during training flights while under normal simulated instrument flight conditions.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The incapacitation of the pilot-in-command, at a critical point in the approach resulting in a loss of control of the aircraft from which the co-pilot was unable to recover."
