The Lockheed Neptune was engaged in a test flight prior to a flight to Malta. During a "touch and go" the propellers failed to go into fine pitch. The captain aborted the takeoff but overran the runway. In order not to hit a bus on the Findhorn road, he selected the undercarriage up. The nose wheel retracted, but the main wheels didn't. The plane stood on it's nose and ground to a halt with one engine on fire. The crew all exited the plane without injury.
