While cruising over the Alps in bad weather conditions and strong winds, the three engine aircraft christened 'Rudolf Windisch' hit a mountain and crashed near Le Grand-Bornand, some 20 km east of Annecy. All six occupants were killed. Inside the cabin were stored boxes containing leaflets of the Franco regime.
Strong winds caused the aircraft to fly out of track. Poor visibility was a contributory factor.
