Summary

The pilot reported that as he applied full power for takeoff, on strip 32, the aircraft began to swing to the left. He was unable to correct the situation and the aircraft ran off the strip and collided with trees. The wind velocity at the time was reported by the pilot to have been a light south-westerly. The topography surrounding the strip is known to give rise to sudden and unpredictable wind gusts and it is possible that the aircraft encountered such a gust as the takeoff run was commenced.
