Descripción:
A Douglas C-47 transport plane had just dropped paratroopers near Kaimana when it was intercepted by a Lockheed SP-2H Neptune, 207, operated by the Dutch Navy. Bursts of 20 mm board cannon fire caused a fire on the left hand wing of the C-47. The airplane ditched at sea and all crew members were rescued.
