Yakovlev Yak-3UA "Full Noise" (a later production aircraft with an Allison V-1710 engine) failed to takeoff from Omaka Aerodrome (NZOM) and went off the end of the runway, across the road, and landed in a fence.
The pilot was not injured and the aircraft received substantial damage. On impact the spinner and propellor separated from the engine, but this together with minor other damage is thought to be repairable.
