Beschrijving:
Missing in Indochina while on a cargo flight from Tezpur to Kunming.
Another C-46A, 41-12295, flew the same route as 41-12298 at the same time. Flying at 17,500 feet, on instruments, the weather was so poor that at times they could not see the wingtips. After landing at Kunming the right wing tip was found damaged and there was a dent on the right top side of the fuselage. The right wing tip de-icer boot had paint on it and the dent indicated that a vertical object had struck the plane. It was hypothesized that there had been an accidental collision between the aircraft.
