Summary: While manoeuvring at a low height in mountainous terrain during a supply dropping mission the port wing of the cargo plane grazed the side of a hill thus causing the aircraft to slew and crash. A contributory factor might have been the mismanagement of the fuel system which caused temporary loss of engine power and height.
