Narrative:
A Fokker F.VIII, H-NAEE, was damaged beyond repair in a forced landing at Nigtevecht, the Netherlands. All eleven on board survived the crash.
The airplane operated on a passenger flight from Malmö, Sweden to Amsterdam, the Netherlands. An intermediate stop was made at Hamburg, Germany.
One engine was shut down following a loss of oil pressure while flying at an altitude of 150-200 m. Altitude could not be maintained on one engine. The crew attempted a forced landing but the captain gave full power shortly before landing. The airplane turned left and smashed into the ground.
