Unfallbericht:
The DC-4 was destroyed by fire during maintenance work in a hangar at Paris-Orly. During work on an engine, an electrical lamp fell in a recovery tub of oil and fuel. The glass of the lamp broke and ignited the mixture of fuel and oil. The flames reached the left wing before the firemen extinguished the fire.
Some parts and the tail of the plane went to the Centre d’Instruction de Vilgénis (CIV). The nose section was used to repair C-54 F-BBDD which had been damaged by a Languedoc plane at Paris-Le Bourget in 1952.
