Convair CV-240 "Paulus Potter" taxied to runway 05 for takeoff. The airplane accelerated down the runway and after a ground run of 700 m, the captain rotated the plane. After flap retraction at a height of about 60 feet and a speed of 145 mph, the airplane started to lose height. The captain closed the throttles and belly landed on the runway. The airplane slid 200 m down the runway, continued past the threshold, crossed a road and came to rest in a field. Many spectators were present on the road and two girls were killed as the airplane crossed the road.
