The airplane departed Gander in the evening of June 21 with four crew members on board and ditched in unknown circumstances off Cape Race. About 10 days later, on early July, the crew was rescued by a schooner. The aircraft was equipped with flotation cells in the wings and did not sink. It was later towed ashore but was damaged beyond repair.
