Circumstances:
After been reassigned to the 194th Squadron, the crew decided to perform a last overflight of the airbase at Victoria Point (now Kawthaung), south of Burma. During the last low pass, a wing hit the tail of another RAF C-47 parked on the apron and registered KN206. The aircraft went out of control and crashed in a huge explosion, killing all five crewmen. Both aircraft were destroyed.
Probable cause:
The crew misjudged the distance between the airplane and the ground and performed a too low pass. Lack of discipline.
