An investigation revealed that the aircraft had impacted ducks. One duck impacted near the windscreen, causing damage to an area of the fight deck were it magneto switches for the engines were located. The impact caused a short circuit in the wires of the magneto switches, after which both engines quit. The crew was not able to feather the props because the generator did not provide sufficient voltage to the electrical network.
