Détails:
The no. 1 engine failed shortly after takeoff. On final the remaining engine also lost power. The pilot attempted to reach the runway by making a diving turn to the left. The DC-3 landed hard, bounced and slid and caught fire.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The port engine and, later, the starboard engine failed as the result of fuel starvation. Circumstantial evidence suggests strongly that this was caused by the inadvertent selection of the auxiliary fuel tanks which at that time contained only a small amount of fuel."
