The DC-3 departed from Doha Airport, Qatar, for Sharjah Airport, United Arab Emirates.
Last radio contact was made to Sharjah air traffic control at 6:05 a.m. GMT, but Sharjah never heard the transmission.
The pilot of a de Havilland Heron plane, who was also scheduled to land at Sharjah, heard the DC-3’s transmission to the airport’s traffic controllers.
The de Havilland Heron plane landed at Sharjah. The DC-3, however, disappeared.
Poor visibility and considerable tailwind were suggested as plausible reasons for the accident.
