Pax on board:
While flying by night in low visibility at an altitude of 3,600 feet, the three engine aircraft hit the slope of a mountain located 10 km south of Sefrou. The wreckage was localized few hours later and all 16 occupants have been killed.
It is believed that, following a navigational error on part of the crew, the aircraft was on the wrong track at the time of the accident. Also, its altitude of 3,600 feet was insufficient.
