Category:Accident
Location:Vashon Municipal Airport - 2S1, King County, WA -   United States of America
Phase: Take off
Nature:Private
Departure airport:Vashon Island, WA (2S1)
Destination airport:Tillamook, OR (KTMK)
Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
The pilot reported that he aborted the takeoff from the grass airstrip because the airplane was not gaining airspeed. He said that after takeoff the airplane remained in ground effect but was not accelerating, and he elected to land on the remaining runway. When the airplane touched down on the runway, it encountered a soft wet area and “slipped.” The airplane then veered off the runway, collided with an embankment, and nosed over. The airplane sustained substantial damage to the wings, fuselage, and empennage. The pilot reported no mechanical anomalies that would have precluded normal operation.
Probable Cause: The pilot's loss of directional control during a rejected takeoff, which resulted in a noseover.
