Descripción:
Douglas Dakota KN556 of 194 Sqn RAF, was scheduled for an early morning takeoff on 25 July 1945 which was delayed until 09:00 hours due to heavy rain rendering the runway unserviceable.
The aircraft was carrying a load R.E's stores for their destination at Toungoo, Burma. When the aircraft finally took off at 10:07 hours nothing unusual was
noticed by Flying Control, with no rain at the time, cloud 7-9/10ths and ceiling of 400-500 feet.
At 17:20 hours the aircraft was reported overdue. Nothing further was heard until the Thursday evening, 26 July 1945, when two members of 62 Squadron who had been fishing near the mouth of the Chuang, Akyab Beach returned to camp and reported finding Dakota wreckage.
