  Problem of the rear wheel-axle unit left blocked in high position - After having tried in vain to free it, they were constrained to be ejected with the top of Angleur, but the plane continued its race until Comblain-Fairon where it was crushed in a field. Cranenbrouck seriously wounded at the time of the ejection: the canopy did not leave to the ejection, and the pilots passed through, whereas it was not weakened. Problem of maintenance of the canopy.
