STATUS

Destroyed

Story is the aircraft landed on a water logged muddy strip and was damaged. Damage to the props was mentioned. It was decided to do field repairs and to wait three days for the strip to dry out a bit before taking off again. It seems the mud was still too deep and it went off the end of the runway and was badly damaged followed by a fire. Aircraft was a total writeoff.
