  • Description

    Scarcely five minutes prior to landing at the Airport of Barajas, the plane doing the service Tangiers-Madrid crashed. All the passengers and crew died in the accident.

    The cause of the disaster seems to have been one of the engines of the plane which took fire. The pilot was trying to make an emergency landing but unfortunately the damaged engine broke loose and the plane fell 5 Kms from Getafe and was soon consumed by the flames, all desperate efforts to save its occupants being useless.

    It was a DC 3-57 from Iberia.
