A series of parachute flights had been planned from Weston-on-the-Green. The first flight was uneventful. Thirteen parachutists boarded for the second flight and the aircraft was cleared to take off from the dry surface of grass runway 01 (take off run available 3,194 feet). At approximately 80 to 83 kt (scheduled rotation speed 71 kt) the pilot pulled back on the control column. The aircraft felt nose heavy and the nose did not rise. He decided to abort the take off, commenced braking and set the condition levers to the full reverse position. As the aircraft decelerated he turned it to the right in order to avoid trees and bushes ahead. The aircraft struck a small earth mound, whilst still travelling at about 15-20 kt, and came to an abrupt halt.

Probable Cause:

The AAIB did not conduct a full investigation into the accident. In their analysis of the accident it was considered "that for the second takeoff of the day the aircraft CG was significantly forward of the forward CG limit."
