As the airplane accelerated through about 50 knots during the takeoff roll, the airplane's right wing began to lift.

The airplane entered a ditch and came to rest upright and partially submerged in water. Postaccident examination of the airplane showed substantial damage to both wings. The pilot reported no preaccident mechanical malfunctions or failures that would have precluded normal operation.
