The Globemaster was involved in a training mission and carried out touch-and-goes at the Palm Beach AFB. Investigation showed that one of the prop cuffs on the left inboard (no. 2) engine came off of the prop blade and went through the fuselage, cutting engine control cables to the number 3 and 4 engines. The plane made a turn to the right crossing over a highway overpass and crashed into a tree nursery.
