wing low slipping attitude until it struck the ground near Alvardo,

barley field and disintegrated in flames.  All 35 aboard were killed.

probably resulted in an accumulation of ice on the aircraft's control surfaces, 
which became immobilized and caused the flight crew to lose 
control of the plane. At the time, Transocean Air Lines was the
