    The picture depicts an H2X plane 44-8047 (SO-Z) which suffered undercarriage failure in a landing accident after a non-operational flight on 19/10/44 at Stn106 with pilot Ralph B. Hicks at the controls. The plane was originally salvaged on 20/10/44 but must have been reclaimed from salvage later because it was assigned to 379th at the end of the war.
