The Air Vietnam DC-3 took off from Hue at 0620 GMT for a flight to Da Nang.

The DC-3 crew replied that they would report on the downwind leg of runway 35. Da Nang requested the plane's position and ETA, but received no reply. The wreckage was later found on a mountain at an elevation of 550 m, 19,6 km NW of Da Nang Airport.
