SummaryAfter both engines stopped in flight and attempts to restart them failed, the aircraft banked sharply, stalled and crashed 10 miles east northeast of Savannah. The fuel selector valves were positioned so that both engines were supplied fuel from only one of the auxilliary tanks until the fuel was exhausted and control of the plane was lost.
