This aircraft departed Lalmanirhat, India on 25 May 1944 for Chabua, India on a routine cargo run. This was an Air Transport Command aircraft assigned to Karachi and with an ATC crew aboard.
The aircraft did not arrive in Chabua, and no distress calls were received from the crew. The weather was very poor that day along its route, with scattered thunderstorms, low clouds and occasional zero visibility being reported. The last report on this aircraft states it is still missing in flight and the crew is presumed dead. Dead: 3.
