Pax on board:
The crew was performing a cargo flight from Camden, carrying newspapers for the Sydney Morning Herald. While cruising at an altitude of 500 feet, the crew encountered low clouds when the aircraft hit a hill and crashed near Bungulla. The aircraft was destroyed and both pilots were killed.
Failure of the pilot to adopt the minimum terrain clearance for flight under Instrument Flight Rules. A contributory factor was that the pilot was cruising at an altitude lower than 500 feet prior to entering clouds.
