Maybe someone can decode the tail numbers for us............

Looked like a tail strike or 2 before liftoff. FOD walk anyone?

"FOD walk"? - sounds military to me.

I just sent Turbs all the info he needs to identify what country it's registered in. We will see what he comes up with for the answer.

It could be if all the FOD on the ramp/flight line isn't picked up.

Unfortunately for the owner, about 5MPH above the minimum take off speed.

It looks like a Corvus Phantom which has a stall speed of 40MPH and probably an official takeoff speed of 60ish. I'd guess it was probably only 40ish winds with gusts of up to 60 which is what finally picked up the aircraft.

Looks like a neat little plane, hope it was repairable.

Don't know if that's an amateur build/experimental aircraft, but you know the old saying - if you still got the data plate,any aircraft is repairable. It just depends on how much money you want to spend to do it.
