Beschrijving:
A DC-3 transport plane went off course during a descent towards Brno. The aircraft impacted the Bradlo hillside, about 40 km east of Brno. The aircraft operated a civilian scheduled cargo night flight which originated in Prague with several stopovers through the whole country. The DC-3 was loaded with newspaper matrixes from a newspaper editorial in Prague for several printers in bigger cities. CSA crew refused to fly due to poor weather forecast, therefore military crew and a military plane was ordered. However, the military crew was not trained for such metrological conditions.
