Extrait du rapport d'enquête (source Accident Report - AFHRA):
On 21 October 1944, while ferrying an aircraft from A-64 to A-80, Lt D W Hedberg arrived at A-80 at 1800 hours, came in down wind, slow pattern. Radio contact could not be established while making his last turn at an altitude of approximately 200 feet, apparently his engine quit and the aircraft stalled and spun.
[...] In addition it has been determined that Lt Hedberg was airborne only 27 minutes, which was not long enough to have consumed all the gas the gauges indicated had been used, however, it is possible that Lt Hedberg took off without a full load of gas. This cannot be determined. It is the opinion of the accident committee that the above factore are not conclusive enough to prove power failure.
