A Curtiss C-46F cargo plane reportedly force landed at Manley Hot Springs Airport in Alaska, USA, following the loss of engine power on one of the two engines.
Photos have appeared online showing the C-46, named "Salmon Ella", just past the end of a runway with the nose section covered by a tarp. The nose section seems to have suffered severe impact damage.
The date of the occurrence is unclear, in any case between 7 and 17 July 2018.

On July 24 the wings (outboard of the engines) and tail were removed and the aircraft was towed over the road to a river. From there it was barged to Fairbanks for repairs.
