The flying boat was ready for take off from the seaplane base at 07:45 in the morning. For unknown reasons the pilot instead of turning left to avoid well-known natural obstacles took a course direct into a stone dike. As the speed was high the plane was totally destroyed as it caught fire and sank.
At least some of the mail was salvaged. The mail was brought to Marseilles for further processing.
