 59-1494 was destroyed by a ground fire at Pease AFB, NH on the morning of 11 Jan 1990. The aircraft had been towed out of the hanger the day before after a phase inspection had been completed. It was parked on the ramp overnight and was to be serviced the next day. Two aircraft technicians were servicing the gaseous oxygen cylinders in the rear cargo compartment when a spark of unknown origin ignited the area. The two aircraft mechanics escaped without injury, but the aircraft was a total loss.
