Unfallbericht:
Crashed at sea 33 minutes after takeoff from Tachikawa AB, Japan.
Only limited floating debris was recovered. The cause was determined to be structural damage resulting from a number three engine nose case failure with aircraft components striking number four engine and causing it to separate from the aircraft. Subsequent severe structural damage to wing and fuselage probably caused loss of aircraft control and electrical power.
