Narrative:
The aircraft departed Moorabbin with the pilot undergoing training handling the controls in the rear cockpit and then carried out a period of air work in the training area. On completion of this exercise and still under the control of the pilot under training, the aircraft returned, joined the circuit and made an approach to runway 17 grass for a touch-and-go landing. After landing and when the aircraft had almost stopped, power was applied for another take-off. The aircraft accelerated normally and reached the flying attitude but, as it neared flying speed, it did not become airborne but instead nosed down. The pilot in command in the front cockpit attempted to correct the attitude with the elevators, but this was unsuccessful and the propeller struck the ground. He closed the throttle and the aircraft continued to pitch nose down until it stood up on its nose. It then fell over to the starboard upper main plane tip and rocked back until it came to rest on the main wheels and the nose. There was no fire.
