Beschrijving:
The flying boat landed off the coast of Akranes because of bad weather at destination Reykjavik. During the night the mooring broke. The crew attempted to control the plane by using the engines. A small boat was sent to the plane with a towing rope. The engines were shut down again but the Catalina beached and the hull was heavily damaged. The flying boat was dismantled and written off.
