Beschrijving:
The aircraft was carrying passengers and freight from Maison Blanche to Oran in Algeria. At approximately 10:00 hours and 15 miles out over the Mediterranean Sea, the right engine started to burn. The bail out order was given, but the plane lost altitude too quickly to use parachutes. The plane ditched and all personnel cleared the aircraft and attempted to don life vests. Three passengers were picked up by a French fishing boat, but seven others did not survive.
