Beschrijving:
The Learjet attained a very nose high attitude (about 45 degrees) while trying to get airborne. The aircraft barely climbed, veered off runway 28L, crashed and caught fire.

Probable Cause:

PROBALE CAUSE: "The (undetermined) pilot-at-the-controls' early, and over rotation of the airplane's nose during the takeoff attempt, and his failure to maintain directional control. Also causal, was the captain's inadequate remedial action, both during the takeoff attempt and after the airplane departed the runway."
