The pilot seemed to have taken corrective action, but in the strong and gusty wind conditions was unable to regain control in time to prevent FK608 spinning to the left, whereupon it crashed near the airfield killing all 10 on board. The four crew are buried at Florence, as are two of the passengers, one a British Army Sgt, the other a Women’s Transport Service nurse and wife of the 2nd pilot. The others who died were a Major of the USAAF 12th Air Force and three officers of the US 15th Army Group.
