The crew left Paris-Le Bourget at 0900LT in good weather conditions, bound for Dublin with 21 French girls and two attendants taking part to a camp in Ireland. While approaching Dublin from the south, the crew encountered poor weather conditions with low clouds and reduced visibility. The captain elected to gain height and pull up when the three engine aircraft hit the slope of a hill and crash landed. All 27 occupants were quickly rescued and unhurt while the aircraft was written off.
