Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: 1. Failure of the pilot to take proper emergency action and indiscretion exercised following failure of port engine due to fatigue. 2. Loss of power due to overheating and malfunctioning of the starboard engine and blowing off in air of its three cylinder heads during prolonged single engine flight with aircraft fully loaded.
