A privately registered Cessna 172 was on the take-off roll, at Tillsonburg, Ontario (CYTB), with only the pilot on board.

The aircraft stalled and struck the ground with the left wing and cartwheeled. The nosewheel collapsed and the aircraft came to rest in an inverted position. The aircraft was substantially damaged but the pilot was uninjured. The 121.5 ELT activated during the impact.
