The C-54 swung to the right during the takeoff roll at a speed of 70 mph. The takeoff was continued but the aircraft traveled 600 m off the runway and struck some obstacles before coming to rest. The flight engineer had placed the main fuel selectors in a 'half-on' position which corresponded with the 'On' position in five of the DC-4 aircraft of the company.
