Beschrijving:
An IFR flight plan was filed by the crew for a flight to Americus, GA to pick up a load of automobile parts for transfer to Rockford, IL.
During the airplane's takeoff roll on runway 14, a witness noted that the color of the no. 1 engine exhaust flame changed from blue to yellow, accompanied by an audible change in the engine power level. The nose of the airplane yawed left and the left wing dipped. This occurred when the airplane was about 3/4 down the 3,700 foot runway. The Carvair overran the runway, ran across Zebulon Road and slammed into the vacant Piggly Wiggly building near the Spalding Square parking lot and caught fire.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The flight crew's inadequate procedures, during a rejected takeoff following a possible engine malfunction at a critical time in the takeoff, and the second pilot's physical impairment. "
