The take-off was abandoned after V1 because the aircraft wouldn't rotate. The aircraft overran runway 07, collided with a fence, crossed a ditch, struck a hill and caught fire.
PROBABLE CAUSE: Excess weight in the front cargo hold displaced the centre of gravity to the forward limit. Two additional trim units would have been required for take-off.
