    Hello,

    20 January 1942 - Craig Field, Alabama.

    At 0840, a North American AT-6A (41-755), crashed two miles south-east of Craig Field, Selma, Alabama, killing RAF Flying Cadet Alfred B. Kinnear. Investigators speculated that the pilot, in the act of raising the landing gear after an unusually long take-off roll, put his head down in the cockpit and inadvertently flew the airplane into trees 2,000 feet from the end of the runway. The airplane bounced back into the air for a few moments before descending at high speed into heavily wooded terrain. The airplane broke off trees and was torn to pieces as it smashed to the ground.
