Description:
Alitalia Flight 771 was a multi-leg Douglas DC-8-43 international scheduled flight from Sydney via Darwin, Bangkok, Bombay, Karachi and Tehran to Rome with 94 on board. On July 7, 1962 18:40 UTC it crashed into a hill about 84 km north-east of Mumbai while on approach.

The accident was attributed to several potential causes, including a navigation error which led the pilot to believe that he was nearer to his destination than he actually was; failure to maintain the recommended safe altitude; and pilot unfamiliarity with the flight route.
