During final approach, in clouds, to Brønnøysund Airport the airplane collided with the mountain Torghatten. All 36 persons on board lost their lives.
The accident was investigated, and a public report on the accident investigation was issued in August 1989 (see Rapport 1989/04 (Norwegian only)). This special additional investigation has been conducted because there was doubt about whether or not disturbances from mobile phones could have been a causal factor.
Based on this special additional investigation, the SHT is of the opinion that the chain of events was not influenced by the mobile phones on board. This report shall be regarded as a supplement to the original investigation report - which remains unchanged.
