Crashed at Dergaon, Assam Valley, India 13 Jun 45. Pilot Clifford Peterson reported that their fuel gauges were reading low, but that that reading was inconsistent with their fuel load and flight time, so they ignored it. When they lost an engine, they requested priority landing at Dergaon, but it was refused. While in the landing pattern, they lost the remaining three engines and put the plane down in a tree-less field. Things were going "well" until they hit a raised roadbed with the belly of the plane which flipped the plane around. Everyone walked away with minor injuries.
