The Beechcraft B200 King Air sustained substantial damage in an accident during takeoff from a 1 km long runway near Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
The aircraft reportedly bounced due to a bump in the airstrip. The aircraft touched down again on the main gear but bounched again after hitting another bump. It yawed left and the takeoff was aborted. The aircraft sustained substantial damage in the subsequent runway excursion.
The nose landing gear and right-hand main gear separated and there was major damage to both wings and both engines.
