Beschrijving:
The Douglas DC-3C yawed to the left during takeoff from Jaisalmer Airport, India. The pilot could not correct this and attempted a premature lift off close to the side of the runway. The aircraft fell back and impacted the ground beside the runway. The aircraft was destroyed in the resulting fire.
Nineteen passengers and four crew members suffered minor injuries.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "Commander attempting take off after experiencing uncommanded and uncontrollable yaw to the left during take off roll and executed pre-mature lift off to avoid aircraft rolling onto kutcha surface resulting in the aircraft to crash on to the ground.
Loss of directional control was probably due to deflection of left wheel which was a contributory factor to the accident."
