Beschrijving:
The DC-3 drifted to the right during takeoff. When the drift became excessive, the pilot tried to lift off at a too low speed. The aircraft touched the ground again past the runway but rebounded and flew on. To avoid striking a hill, a left hand turn was executed during which the left wing struck the roof of a house. The aircraft crashed.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "1) Incorrect use of flying controls during takeoff roll; 2) Possible failure of port engine; 3) Turbulent conditions close to ground."
