The aircraft was to take off from Lindeman Island. The strip was reported as being a bit rough. The pilot held the control column full back during the take-off run, however the nose gear struck the ground three or four times. As the aircraft speed approached take-off speed the nose gear collapsed and the aircraft skidded to a halt in a nose-down attitude.
