Beschrijving:
The Viking aircraft "Lord St Vincent" crashed on approach to Belfast. It struck approach lights, an SBA van and the ILS building before breaking up.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The Inquiry found no indication of mechanical failure. The documentation of the aircraft was in order, the crew were properly qualified, and control procedures were correctly carried out. The Inquiry found that on the evidence available there existed such conditions as could properly be described as deceptive to the pilot and the conclusion was that the primary cause of the accident was an error of judgement on the part of the captain."
