Narrative:
Shortly after takeoff, the aircraft encountered a heavy wind gust which caused it to roll to the right and descend. The instructor took control and attempted to recover the situation. Although the aircraft apparently started to respond the instructor assessed that his input was not correcting the situation quickly enough and he closed the throttle, held the control column back and allowed the aircraft to descend to ground level. The aircraft impacted nose first, to the right of the flight strip, before sliding to a stop and overturning.
