The airplane was observed to begin the takeoff on runway 30 from the threshold, and after rotation, the tower controller noted the airplane pitched up steeply, then rolled quickly to the right an estimated 90 degrees. The airplane began a right descending turn, then rolled left and continued descending. At 14:09, the tower controller advised the flightcrew that the turn should be to the left.
