After taxiing onto runway 24 via taxiway D, the crew was cleared for take-off at 08:37 hrs by the responsible air traffic control centre (tower) with the wind indication of 180 degrees and 6 knots (kt).
As the aircraft was taxiing and shortly before the engines reached full take-off power, the nose wheel lifted off the ground and the tail of the aircraft hit the runway. Immediately the power of the engines was reduced and the nose wheel touched down again. The pilot in command (PF) then aborted the take-off. The aircraft was taxied back to the terminal.
The malfunction occurred because the aircraft was operated with an improper centre of gravity position.
