Flown by Boeing's chief test pilot, Edmund T. Allen on a two-hour powerplant performance test, one of the planes engines caught fire. Due to the significant use of magnesium, the engine fire eventually burned through the wing spar, causing the wing to break apart. The crash killed many élite Boeing personnel involved in the design; the pilot, Allen, was chief of the Research Division.
