The crew, assigned to the 69th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron from Minot, North Dakota, was engaged in a training sortie in Andersen AFB. During the takeoff roll, the captain decided to abandon the procedure and started an emergency brake maneuver. Unable to stop within the remaining distance, the aircraft overran and came to a halt in flames. All seven crew members were able to escape without injuries but the aircraft was destroyed by fire. The registration is unconfirmed.
