This airplane would later be involved in this accident.

During takeoff, the aircraft failed to achieve sufficient airspeed and overran the departure end of runway 29. Density altitude at the time was 7,500 feet. The pilot said he was aware of a high density altitude, and had purposely serviced the airplane with a partial load of fuel. Also, he noted that he had no problem on takeoff from Hattiesburg, Mississippi (elevation 151 feet) or Wichita Falls, Texas (elevation 1,005 feet), and he expected no problem during this takeoff. No pre-accident/mechanical malfunction or failure was noted during the investigation
