A vintage plane carrying aviation enthusiasts crashed at September 26, 1996 off the Dutch coast shortly after its pilot reported engine trouble. All 32 people aboard were killed.

A small flotilla of navy and fishing boats headed for the wreckage of the 55-year-old DC-3 Dakota soon after the 4:45 p.m. crash. But would-be rescuers were hampered by mist, fast-fading light and the tangled wreckage of the plane.

25 september 1996: Dakota ramp, Waddenzee, Den Helder
Na de start van Texel krijgt de enige nog in Nederland vliegende Dakota DC3 PH-DDA mechanische problemen in de linkermotor. De motor wordt uitgezet, maar de piloten slagen er niet in de propeller in de vaanstand te zetten. Daardoor wordt het toestel moeilijk bestuurbaar. De bemanning probeert een noodlanding op het marinevliegveld De Kooy bij Den Helder te maken, maar het toestel raakt in een duikvlucht en boort zich in het ondiepe water van de Waddenzee, op de zandplaat Lutjeswaard, 18 kilometer ten noordoosten van Den Helder. Alle 32 inzittenden komen om.
