SummaryA navigational error on the part of the captain. This error was severely aggravated by the lack of proper radio aids from the destination airport, the unserviceability of the aircraft R/T equipment, and to a lesser degree the physical condition of the crew. The secondary cause was the cargo plane coming into close proximity of high ground due to the captains uncertainty of his position.
