The plane was performing the final leg of the long flight from Dakar to Toulouse. The plane had left Barcelona and was cruising over the Pyrenees Mountains and around 07:00 it suddenly hit the mountain peak of Cinq Croix less than 1 km from the Las Indies mines. The plane turned over and rolled down into the Ravin de la Prison and caught fire. A search party was organized in Corsavy, but due to a snow storm they had to march three hours before they arrived at the crash site.
The reason for the crash was never determined.
The recovered mail consisted of four intact mail bags and seven others broken up. Different French handstamps, resealing labels and service covers are known. Only 3 Nordic items are known and all are shown below. None of these have Nordic crash markings.
