A Cessna 172S struck runway edge lights during takeoff for a night flight. The solo occupant, a licensed private pilot, was on a night flight and successfully completed the round-robin night VFR mission without noticing anything out of ordinary except for "bumpier than normal" initial take-off.

Runway inspection on the next day and post-flight inspection of the aircraft revealed the incident. The propeller, right landing gear strut and the engine sustained damages. The pilot remained unharmed. The aircraft required major repairs.
