The Ju-52 had taken off from Le Bourget shortly before 9 am. The plane had been charted to fly 21 French Girl Guides to Ireland for a camping holiday. Although weather conditions were good when the aircraft took off, they rapidly deteriorated along the way. Near the village of Roundwood, the disoriented captain initiated a climb to a safe altitude. The climb angle was identical to the rising angle of the mountain slope, and the aircraft mushed into the undergrowth and slid to a safe stop on Djouce Mountain.
