Unfallbericht:
Prior to takeoff, the aircraft was deiced. The aircraft taxied to runway 13 and started the takeoff roll at 17:58:36.
At 60 knots, the indicated airspeed (IAS) appeared to stop increasing. The airspeed indicator increased once from 60 knots to 80 knots, then returned to 60 knots. Takeoff was aborted at 17:59:23. Brakes were ineffective and the airplane ran off the end of the runway, coming to rest on a dike and a tidal mud flat.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The failure of the flightcrew to comply with checklist procedures to turn on an operable pitot/static heat system, resulting in ice and/or snow blockage of the pitot tubes that produced erroneous airspeed indications, and the flightcrew’s untimely response to anomalous airspeed indications with the consequent rejection of takeoff at an actual speed of 5 knots above V1."
