Crew:
Karl Axel Olof Arbin, pilot,
Bo Siggeson Kirsten, signaller,
Passengers:

Han Thorsén.
Probable cause:
It was determined that the engine failure was caused by a fuel exhaustion because the fuel selector was connected to an empty fuel tank. At the time of the accident, sufficient fuel remained in an other fuel tank but for unknown reason, the pilot forgot to change the fuel selector in due time.

Circumstances:
The aircraft was engaged in a cargo flight to Jönköping, carrying a load of newspaper, four passengers and a crew of two. After takeoff from runway 13 at Stockholm-Bromma Airport in good weather conditions, the airplane climbed to a height of 20 meters when the starboard engine lost power. The aircraft, turning to the right and climbing, gradually stalled and crashed at the intersection of the runways. Three passengers and one crew member were killed and the surviving passenger and a pilot were seriously injured.
Probable cause:
The probable cause of the accident was a piloting error. The take-off speed was too low and consequently, when an engine failure occurred the aircraft stalled. The engine failure was probably caused by a lack of fuel in the tank on which the pilot had set the selector.

Circumstances:
The aircraft was performing a flight from Uppsala to RAF Cranwell, carrying 17 cadets and a crew of four. About 40 minutes after takeoff, the right engine suffered oil issues and the crew decided to feather the right propeller and to divert to Bromma Airport. On final approach, the pilot in command encountered low visibility due to poor weather conditions and was unable to distinguish clearly the runway. In such conditions, he decided to make a go around when the aircraft, contaminated by ice, could not gain height and crashed on the slope of a hill located 2,5 km west of the airport. Twelve occupants were injured and eight others were unhurt. Unfortunately, the copilot F/Lt D. H. Davy was killed.
