Crashed due to an engine fire in Soper, Oklahoma. The pilot ejected safely and walked to the nearest farmhouse for assistance. The crash was the unit's first loss in its entire 54 year history. Cause was that the engine experienced a high cycle fatigue fracture of a fourth stage turbine blade below the blade platform and subsequent damage to the low pressure turbine which made it to stall.

764... Crashed Feb 1994. Pilot got out (Praise God) we had just got the plane transfered to us 2 weeks prior. Back then Pratt had a bunch of bad blades (made wrong). Blade in the high pressure stage broke at the root and blew out the back of the motor...
