Summary

The aircraft had been engaged in spraying operations and was about to takeoff after refilling with water. During loading the aircraft had been positioned on a heading of about 30 degrees to the left of the takeoff direction. The pilot turned the aircraft onto the takeoff heading and commenced the takeoff run. Shortly after the aircraft struck a concrete water trough positioned near the edge of the strip which had not been seen by the pilot. Substantial damage was caused to the propeller and left landing gear.
