The Greyhound was completing a troop transfer from Subi Point, Philippines, to the USS Constellation aircraft carrier. While approaching the navy ship, the airplane went out of control, dove into the sea and disintegrated on impact. Quickly on the scene, about 15 km from the ship, rescuers found some debris floating on water and an oil slick. None of the 26 occupants survived the crash.

Causes:
Due to lack of evidences, the exact cause of the accident could not be determined with certainty. However, it is believed that the loss of control may have been caused by an engine failure. During investigations, structural problems were reported on the engine nacelles. The CofA of the Greyhound was suspended during the investigations.
