Narrative:
The aircraft was taxied along the grass taxiway running parallel to runway 10, upon reaching a position adjacent to the "Piano Keys" the aircraft was turned at 90 degrees to the runway direction to enter the runway just short of the threshold gable markers. Unseen by the pilot was an unmarked drain/culvert which also ran parallel to the runway and was hidden from sight by the grass. As the aircraft began to cross the drain, the propeller tips encountered the earth on the far side of the depression, delaminating them of a length of approximately 70mm.
