SummaryThe airliner experienced trouble with all four engines. The crew attempted to return to Guildford but in the dark, while in a 15 degree turn to port, the aircraft barely cleared a ridge line, struck a tree 30 feet off the ground and ploughed into a downward slope shredding itself and contents into small pieces. The aircraft was named 'Amana.'
