Beschrijving:
DC-3 XY-ACL operated on the domestic route Rangoon-Dawei (also known as Tavoy)-Myeik (also known as Mergui) when it approached Mergui runway 01. On finals the left wing of the aircraft struck trees. Control was lost and the aircraft landed heavily 820 feet from the runway threshold, causing the no. 2 engine to separate from its mounts. The DC-3 came to rest 475 feet from the threshold, 50 feet from the edge of the runway. Fire destroyed the forward part of the fuselage.
Local airport firefighting services were inadequately equipped.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The crash was attributed to an error of judgement on the part of the pilot, but there was nothing in the evidence to show what may have caused the error nor is there any evidence to show that the error was caused by negligence on the part of the pilot."
