Détails:
During 1975, the aircraft was under contract to the US Department of the Interior and based at Anchorage, Alaska. On August 8, 1975, the aircraft was being flown back to it's home base at Greybull Airport, Wyoming.
The first fuel stop was Ketchikan in Alaska, but the aircraft was not able to land there due to bad weather.
Shortly after midnight on August 9, after seven hours of flight, the aircraft ran out of fuel, and the engines began to flame out.
The crew attempted to reach Port Hardy Airport, British Columbia, Canada. During final approach with only one engine still running,
the pilot considered he was too high to land and attempted to go-around. The aircraft struck the ground during the turn, crashed through the airport perimeter fence, crossed the rock and driftwood strewn beach, and came to rest in the ocean, approximately
100 yards offshore.
