Beschrijving:
The RCAF Argonaut of the 426 Transport Squadron departed Vancouver on a flight to Edmonton and Montreal. En route to Edmonton the airplane ran into icing conditions and one engine failed. The crew decided to return to Vancouver. Light rain was falling as the C-54 approached Vancouver. On landing the airplane suddenly banked. A wing was torn off and the airplane rolled upside down and skidded before coming to rest at the edge of a 10-foot ditch.
