Beschrijving:
Air America leased China Airlines' C-46 B-1535 and coded it "CA-1" in 1966. During takeoff, the plane experienced an over speed prop to 3000 RPM of the no. 1 engine at 80 knots. As there was little runway left and US military tents and aircraft on both sides, the pilot retracted the gear and belly-landed the plane into a field straight ahead.
