July 15, Matawan, N.J. / Boeing Stearman


At about 17:00 eastern time, a Boeing A75L300 nosed over during the takeoff roll from runway 27 at Marlboro Airport. The pilot was not injured. Witnesses and the pilot said the airplane made a takeoff roll of about 400 feet and, when the tailwheel came up, the tail just kept rising until the propeller struck the ground. The 15,000-hour pilot said the brakes may have been binding on the takeoff roll.
