  • During the takeoff roll, while running at high speed, the pilot-in-command rejected takeoff and started an emergency braking procedure, apparently following an engine problem. The twin engine aircraft veered off runway to the left, contacted soft ground and lost its nose gear before coming to rest in the bush. Some of the occupants were slightly injured.
