Circumstances:
As the weather conditions were deteriorating, the board of the Dutch National Company KLM decided to move the aircraft that was parked in Haamsted to a safe place and ask three technicians to do so. During taxiing, the aircraft was caught by strong winds and eventually went out of control before coming to rest upside down. While all three occupants were unhurt, the aircraft christened 'Zwaluw' was damaged beyond repair.
Probable cause:
Caught by strong winds and destroyed on ground.
