DC-3 I-LINC was cleared for a VFR flight to Elba and continuing IFR to Milan along airways A3 and A9. Cruising altitude was FL105.
The course laid down in the flight plan was not followed; instead the crew tried to fly a direct course Roma-Milan. The aircraft deviated from this direct course and crashed into a mountain 2h12 min after takeoff.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The Commission concluded that the change in route followed by the aircraft and the resulting accident may be attributed to the following: a) the pilot did not follow the airways assigned in the flight plan - which constitutes a violation of flight rules; b) he did not check his direction and position along the new route; c) unfavourable weather conditions and drift existed; d) there was a possibility of error in the navigational instruments."
