Aero AT-3 R100, G-SACW substantially damaged due to Loss of control during takeoff, Sherburn-in-Elmet Aerodrome, North Yorkshire, 17 February 2019. The official AAIB report was published on 9 May 2019, and the following is an excerpt from it:

"During the takeoff roll on grass Runway 19, the aircraft went over a “hump” in the runway at an airspeed of about 40 kt and became airborne. The pilot reported that, as the aircraft was “below flying speed”, he reduced the pitch attitude slightly, but the aircraft’s nose continued to drop and, upon contact with the runway, the nose wheel detached. The aircraft came to a stop shortly after, and the pilot shut down the engine. Both occupants were uninjured."

Damage sustained to airframe: Per the above AAIB report "Nose wheel, nose landing gear, propeller, fuselage skin below engine damaged"
