The aircraft was chartered by the Touring Club de Belgique for a charter flight. It was scheduled for take-off from Brussels-Evere/Haren Airport, with a flight via Aalst, Gent and Ostend, scheduled for a stop at Antwerp-Deurne Airport, and a return flight to Brussels-Evere/Haren airport.
While overflying Mortsel, an explosion occurred in the left engine, resulting in a fire. The rapid spread of the fire made it impossible to land at nearby Antwerp-Deurne airport; instead an emergency landing was made in a field at Edegem. After touchdown, all occupants managed to evacuate the aircraft without injury; the aircraft subsequently burnt out on the ground.
This was the second Sabca-built Handley Page W.8.
