The C-47A transport plane was inbound from Villacoublay, France, but was not able to land at RAF Exeter due to poor visibility. The pilot decided to divert to RAF Western Zoyland, but received the reciprocal of the required QDM (magnetic heading). The flight continued in clouds over high terrain until it impacted a stone wall on a hillside.
