Descripción:
While climbing out of Los Angeles, the flight experienced a malfunction of the no.3 and then no.2 engines Both props were feathered. Prop no.3 was later unfeathered but failed to develop more than 1800 RPM. An instrument approach was made at Long Beach and the runway was not visible until directly over it, with the aircraft passing over half of the runway before touching down. Brakes were not effective on the wet slippery surface.
The aircraft ran through a fence and over a spur track, at which time the right gear collapsed. It came to rest approximately 1400 feet from the runway.

The airplane was repaired and was destroyed in an accident on September 1, 1961 near Chicago-Midway Airport.
