The Starways DC-3 was on a positioning flight to Glasgow because it had to fly to Lourdes the day after. While on an instrument approach, the aircraft struck a hill at 1250 feet msl.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "An error of airmanship on the part of the captain. During an instrument approach at night he permitted the aircraft to descend below the approved safety height and this resulted in the aircraft striking the ground."
