Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The pilot was attempting to take off from a property airstrip. The surface condition was described as being firm to soft. During the latter stages of the takeoff roll, the aircraft was reported to have passed through two soft patches of dirt, with a subsequent loss of momentum. This resulted in the aircraft becoming airborne about 27 metres before a fence. The aircraft collided with the top wires of the fence, before flying into the tops of some small trees. The aircraft was landed in a wings-level attitude, however, the right main landing gear struck a log and was torn off.
