During the takeoff roll by night, after V1 speed, the crew elected to rotate but the aircraft failed to respond. The captain abandoned the takeoff procedure and initiated an emergency braking maneuver. Unable to stop within the remaining distance, the aircraft overran, lost its undercarriage and came to rest few dozen metres further. Both pilots escaped uninjured and the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
It was determined that the total weight of the aircraft was above MTOW and the CofG was out of permissible limits.
