The DC-3 lost height quickly after takeoff and crashed in a field and burst into flames some 4000 feet from the airport.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "Loss of critical height during a steep left hand turn, with the undercarriage down, executed by the pilot at an unsafe altitude in an attempt to return to the aerodrome, after experiencing a temporary loss of power of the left engine soon after getting airborne. A false right engine fire warning precipitated the attempt at a forced landing."
