A Douglas C-47, named "Bluebonnet Belle", was involved in an accident during takeoff from runway 19 at Burnet Municipal Airport, Texas, USA.
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.

A video of the takeoff and accident sequence shows the aircraft accellerating 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 wing tip 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.

13 Survive C-47 Crash

Thirteen people aboard Bluebonnet Belle, a well-known Commemorative Air Force C-47, escaped after the aircraft crashed on takeoff at Burnet Airport near Austin, Texas, on Saturday. The aircraft was on a flight to AirVenture 2018 when it seemed to struggle to get airborne from a three-point attitude (C-47s normally take off tail high), banked right and slewed left before crashing on the infield. The aircraft caught fire and was destroyed.
At least one person on the plane suffered severe burns, seven were slightly injured and the rest were unhurt. The aircraft served most of its life with the Royal Canadian Air Force, which retired it in 1970. It was used by a variety of operators in Canada and the U.S. before it was purchased by the CAF in 2002 and based at Burnet.
