817th Troop Carrier Sq. (Skyrunners), had to abort takeoff and got a little banged up. Good pilots ensured no one was injured in this crash.

Nice picture :) However i fail to see what good the pilots did here. They certainly did their best, but had limited options. They were no better pilots than other.

The picture indicates the c119 was well constructed due to the speed it was traveling when it abort and the nose landing gear colasped.
