Location: Spilve
Details:
  • While landing at Spilve, the aircraft fuselage collapsed and folded on the midpoint.
  • Valleika survived the crash, but it was reported as being quite a heavy impact.
  • It was determined that the aircraft, which had received heavy use for many years as a trainer, was greatly weakened by being left standing outside, rather than in a hangar, for all of 1932.
