Détails:
The Sabreliner corporate jet had departed from Stuttgart, Germany on a flight to Toronto, Canada. Intermediate stops were planned at Shannon Airport (SNN), Ireland, Keflavik (KEF) and Frobisher Bay Airport, NU (YFB). Last contact with the flight was when the pilot radioed that he was 30 miles southeast of Frobisher Bay with about 15 minutes of fuel in the tanks. The airplane was later found to have impacted a rocky hillside some 66 miles from Frobisher Bay.
It seems that a radio beacon near the Frobisher Bay Airport malfunctioned shortly after the flight had been cleared for the approach. The beacon was off the air for 49 minutes.

In 1976 the Canadian government settled a lawsuit by agreeing to pay USD 1,2 million to the widow and children of one of the passengers.
