During a night approach to Oxford-University Airport, the visibility was reduced and the copilot-in-command failed to realize his altitude was too low. The aircraft struck the ground short of runway threshold, lost its undercarriage and came to rest. All three crew members were uninjured while the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
The copilot misjudged distance and altitude on final approach. Inadequate supervision of flight on part of the captain. There were no runway approach lights at the time of the accident.
