In The Above Video, you can see A Douglas C-47, named “Bluebonnet Belle”, was involved in an accident during takeoff from runway 19 at Burnet Municipal Airport, Texas, USA.

Video of the takeoff and accident sequence shows the aircraft accelerating on the runway, with the tailwheel leaving the ground very briefly.

A few seconds after the tailwheel touched down again, the aircraft seems to drift off the left side of the runway. The aircraft banks right, causing the left-hand main landing gear to become airborne. The right-hand wingtip touched or almost touched the ground before the aircraft became airborne.

The left wing dropped and the wing tip touched the ground, causing the plane to slew to the left and touch down again. The right-hand main gear then seems to fold as the aircraft comes to rest in a cloud of dust.

The aircraft came to rest in the grass next to the runway and burst into flames. All 13 on board survived the accident; five suffered minor injuries.

The Commemorative Air Force owns the plane, which was heading to Oshkosh Wisconsin for an airshow.

All 13 people on board were able to exit the aircraft, according to the Burnet County Sheriff’s Office.

One person was airlifted by helicopter to with significant burn injuries to the San Antonio burn unit, according to a spokesperson with the Commemorative Air Force.

The aircraft caught on fire and ignited nearby grass. Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire.

The National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration will investigate the accident.
