The C-130E aircraft was based at Andersen AFB (UAM) on Guam and departed on a training mission to perform touch-and-go's at Guam-Agana NAS (NGM). Prior to one of the landings, the no. 3 or no. 4 engine had been shut down. The aircraft experienced a blow-out of tires on the right hand main landing gear on touchdown. It yawed right, skidded across a taxiway and parking ramp narrowly missing a parked line of A-3 fighters. It finally came to rest against an embankment where the remains of the aircraft completely burned out.
