The left undercarriage leg of the DC-3 collapsed during the takeoff run from St. Pierre. The plane rolled left and became airborne half way down the runway, at a speed just above stalling speed. The left wingtip struck the runway boundary marker and the takeoff was abandoned. The aircraft rolled through a ditch, causing the right undercarriage leg and right propeller to be torn off.
