The aircraft was operating on a navigation flight when it disintegrated in-flight and crashed.
A catastrophic failure of the port engine reduction gear and propeller cause the engine to break off. The landing gear then dropped and fractured the front main spar, the centre section then failed and the port wing fell off the airframe.
The wreckage was found on 19 May 1951.
