The crash

I have not been able to find much information about this crash. The plane crashed at 10:30 during takeoff from Linate airport in foggy weather.


The mail

It seems as if very little mail from this crash could be salvaged. The only item I know is the one illustrated below. Nierinck does not mention this crash in his handbook.
