The four engine aircraft was carrying 3,000 gallons of fuel to Nixon Fork Gold Mine near McGrath, Alaska. Upon landing, the aircraft came in short and low and hit some rocks at the end of the runway. The plane did a 180-degrees turn to the right. The left wing broke off and caught fire. The rest of the plane went into a ditch. Both occupants were slightly injured. The 3,000 gallons of fuel did not explode but the aircraft was destroyed.
