Détails:
Douglas C-47B had just landed at Suwon when it was told to hold position as some P-51 fighters were about to depart. One of the fully armed P-51 fighters did not climb sufficiently after takeoff. The bottom of the plane struck the flight deck of the C-47, causing substantial damage. The P-51 landed safely.
The next day, the aircraft was stripped of all movable parts including engines, radios, etc and then blown up, as Chinese troops were closing in on Suwon.
