An immediate landing was carried out during which the copilot was seriously injured, and the aircraft was destroyed.

The wreckage was later salvaged for spare parts.

Probable Causes: "Due to fuel starvation, both engines stopped and an immediate forced landing was made. For reasons which were not determined, an electrically-operated fuel valve failed to function properly and prevented the flow of fuel from the right tank."
