Narrative:
A Lisunov Li-2, CCCP-21504, sustained substantial damage in a takeoff accident at Leningrad (now St. Petersburg). One crew member died.
The pilot lost control shortly after becoming airborne. The tail contacted the ground some 37 m left of the runway, tearing off the tail wheel. The airplane landed and bounced, ripping off the main undercarriage on the next touch down. The Li-2 skidded and came to rest at a distance of 245 meters to the left edge of the runway.


Investigation revealed that the airplane was overloaded by 687 kg and it lifted off the runway at a speed insufficient for the actual weight.
