Vol AD Longuyon - Villette (54) - AD Dijon Darois (21).

Le pilote indique qu'il a peut-être freiné involontairement lors du roulement au décollage, en utilisant le palonnier à un moment où il augmentait la puissance. L'avion a alors basculé sur le nez, puis est passé sur le dos.

The pilot stated that he had perhaps braked involuntarily during the takeoff roll, by using the rudder pedal at a time when he was increasing power. The aeroplane tilted forward onto its nose and then flipped over onto its back.
