Narrative:
On August 14, 2020, about 1235 mountain daylight time, a Piper, PA-28-140, N317LB, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Harlowton, Montana. The pilot and three passengers sustained minor injuries. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.
According to the pilot, he selected runway 27 and performed a short-field takeoff at the airplane's maximum gross weight. About 77 miles per hour (MPH), "I rotated and we began to climb before reaching the end of the runway." He recalled that moments later, the airspeed decreased, and the airplane descended. The airplane touched down and nosed over on the grass surface of a pasture about one mile west of the airport. The airplane sustained substantial damage to the left wing and the fuselage.
