    Background: A D C 7-C of the Pan American Airways, coming from London Saturday-afternoon, arrived on the airport of Schiphol in a heavy fog and made a very unfortunate landing.

    Captain Reedy put his plane too early to the ground. He came in trouble and presumably he tried to take off again, which did not succeed. The plane came to a standstill half a mile after he touched the ground. The landing-gear of the machine failed and he landed on its belly, which damaged the plane.

    The 12 passengers and the crew could safely leave the machine. Happily Capt. Reedy succeeded in preventing a fire, otherwise the consequences for passengers and plane would have been far more serious.
