Losses of several Ju 52 during a snow storm April 7th, 1941, Austria

I'm looking for information about some Ju 52 losses during really bad weather on April 7th, 1941 in the Bad Vöslau / Vienna - Austria region. All aircraft were on a mission to Romania. Cheers, Kurt

So 5 of 16 was lost en route. Not very good flight planning or maybe too optimistic meteorogists.

Fog and blowing snow was reported on that fateful Monday of 1941.

@Matti and Rèmi: May I ask from which source your took your information?

I want to find out more about that "Gruppe Willerding" and their mission. Does anyone can confirm where they took off? Thanks - Kurtl
