NOAA Photo Library Image - anta0115

A Douglas R4D-5 aircraft crash-landed when its starboard landing gear collapsed on landing on September 15, 1959. There were no fatalities. This must have been a medical evacuation or similar trip as the caption refers to it as a " mercy plane." The aircraft was attached to Antarctic flight squadron VX-6.
