Descripción:
The four-engine Lancastrian plane was destroyed by fire during a landing accident at Dubbo Airport, NSW (DBO). The airplane was engaged in a training flight, with the crew members practicing takeoffs and landings. At the time of the accident the pilot carried out a flapless landing. It failed to stop on the runway so the pilot attempted a ground loop in the south-east corner of the airfield. The left hand wheel gave way, causing the left wing to contact the ground. The wing broke, causing spilled fuel to ignite. The fire destroyed the aircraft.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The pilot carried out a flapless landing under unsuitable meteorological and wind conditions."
