This was Mosquito B.35 (EC-AKH) used by Minnesota Airmotive to transport electronic equipment to its aviation projects in Spain (really!) and at Kenora in an ill-fated attempt to avoid registering the aircraft in the US - the plan went badly wrong when the brakes failed on landing and she ended up in a ditch with a damaged spar and undercarriage. 23/08/1957
Crew: ???? Ok
