Garuda Indonesia Airlines Flight 330

Garuda Indonesia Airlines Flight 330Thursday December 24, 1959
Shortly after takeoff the cargo plane lost the No. 2 engine, tried to return to the airport but crashed. Failure of the right engine, a lack of precaution on the part of the captain and marginal weather. A contributing factor may have been the overloaded condition of the aircraft, however, not to such an extent that it forced the aircraft to descend to a dangerously low altitude.
