Crashed while on a supply drop for the British 14th army. The airplane departed Hathazari Airfield along with three others at 07:08 hours. Poor weather (hill ranges covered with extensive cumulus clouds) forced three aircraft to return to base. FD820 continued but failed to return.
The aircraft was later found to have crashed.
