A Douglas C-47A, operated by KLM, departed Amsterdam-Schiphol Airport at 04:25 on a scheduled return flight to London.
The flight crew consisted of a captain, flight engineer, radio-operator and a flight attendant. Three additional pilots were on board on a flight familiarisation to London. There were no passengers on the leg to London. The cargo consisted of 188 kg of mail.
Last radio contact was at 04:40 when the crew reported having passed the Dutch shore line. Fifteen minutes later the captain of a Danish ship reported that he witnessed an aircraft crashing in flames into the North Sea, 40 miles off the Dutch coast.
At that location a few pieces of wreckage were retrieved.
