The pilot requested taxi clearance for departure from runway 11, but as this runway was not available due to maintenance being carried out on the arrestor cable, he was instructed by air traffic control to taxi for runway 18, and advised of a 9 knot crosswind component. During take-off the pilot lost directional control and the aircraft ground looped to the left, collapsing the right landing gear leg. The aircraft came to a stop at the intersection of runways 36/18 and 29/11.
