CRASH LANDING AT KUNMING


From Fletcher Hank's, "WHEN AND HOW THE CNAC CRASHES HAPPENED ON THE HUMP AND ITS ENVIRONS DURING WWII" (hand-dated 5/4/02)

Richard Mulloy, 03/18/45, C47 #96.
No fatalities. Chinese crew. On landing at Kunming, the right landing gear gave way. When the right propeller hit the ground, it broke away from the engine and sliced through the cockpit. Fortunately the engine was not drawing full power at the time or the propeller may have killed the two pilots.
