Summary

The area which was available for take-off was aligned east/west, 3,000 feet in length and 160 feet wide, and its surface was a short crop stubble. A wire fence three feet six inches high formed the northern and western boundaries and the area was bounded to the south by a standing crop. The Flight Manual of the aircraft required a distance of 1,840 feet to be available for this take-off under the conditions which existed at the time.
