Suffered a Class A mishap, but is surprisingly considered repairable, but most likely will not be repaired. It was written-off at Kirtland AFB, New Mexico. The aircraft was the 3rd out of a 4-ship to take off, but it had no rotation of the stabs and subsequently the nose did not rise. The runway barrier did not raise in time and the aircraft went off the runway. The pilot, Captain Peter H. Parsons, ejected safely. Pilot had not taken into account Kirtland's high altitude and tried to rotate for take-off too early. There was suspicions of under-serviced nose strut contributing to crash but this was disputed due to the fact that the aircraft still should have rotated and numerous other Moody aircraft had improperly serviced struts and why didn't they have the same problems.
