The German-built Junker JU52 HB-HOT aircraft, dating from 1939 and nicknamed "Iron Annie", was a collectors' aircraft.
Swiss police said five copters were involved in the search and rescue operation and the airspace over the crash site was to remain closed until late Sunday. They also expect the investigation into the cause of the crash to be "relatively complex".
Officials said Sunday the vintage aircraft appeared to hit the ground near-vertically and at a high speed.
Just hours before the Ju-52 crash, a family of four was killed when their small plane went down in the Alps, but it was located further west.
Officials can essentially rule out a collision with another aircraft or hitting an obstacle such as a wire, and there's no indication of foul play or that the aircraft lost parts or broke up before the crash, he added.
