This aircraft crash-landed in an open field 1-1/2 miles north of Deenethorpe during assembly; all crew remained in plane and all were ok. Number 3 engine was lost due to mechanical failure, and the other engines were damaged by the need for extra power to keep a fully-loaded aircraft airborne.

There is a hint of nose art on the left side of the nose, but it is insufficient to provide clear identification.
