The Douglas C-53 was taking off when the plane deviated to the right. An overcorrection caused a sharp turn left. The plane headed towards a few other aircraft, but the pilot thought he could clear those by initiating an early takeoff. This didn't work out and the DC-3 collided with two other aircraft: PT-ABZ and PP-HDJ. The DC-3 crashed and caught fire.
The airplane operated on a flight from Jaguar„o to Rio Grande, Pelotas and Porto Alegre.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The accident was attributed to pilots error - incorrect use of the brakes and control while on the ground."
