During the take-off run, on Runway 24, the pilot raised the tail as normal; however, the aircraft then over-pitched and the propeller struck the grass runway. The pilot assessed the runway surface as smooth and the wind Was 5 knots along the runway. The majority of the pilotís recent experience had been on aircraft equipped with a nose wheel. The pilot had flown approximately five hours on tail wheeled aircraft since the beginning of the year and his last flight on the Tiger Moth took place six weeks prior to the accident.

The pilot attributed the accident to his not centralising the elevator after the tail was raised. G-ANEN was repaired and was sold on to new owners 18.05.2009
