Directional control was lost on takeoff; the aircraft swerved off the runway at a 60-70 knots speed and continued for 1500 feet before coming to rest. Some control locks were not removed during pre-flight checks. The takeoff was hurried to clear the runway for a landing aircraft.
The co-pilot on this flight, reported to ASN that all control surface locks were removed before take-off. He said "The NTSB came to their conclusion by finding streamers from control locks on the airfield."
