Descripción:
The Boeing Stratocruiser was on a flight from San Francisco to Singapore with some in-between stops. As the aircraft touched down at Manila (runway 06) the undercarriage collapsed. The plane skidded and swerved to the right, coming to rest 2850 feet past the runway threshold and 27 feet from the edge of the runway. One of the passengers was killed when one of the blades of the no. 3 prop broke off, penetrating the passenger cabin.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The hard landing of the aircraft caused the failure or collapse of the right main gear 'V' strut support. Contributing factors were the heavy rains and gusty wind."
