Four-up in a warrior? Overweight much?

How do you know they were overweight?

It's possible, granted.

I don't know. I was asking a question. That's why I put a question mark.

You know, the chip on your shoulder is sooo big, I'm surprised there's still room for your head. How did I upset you this time?

I think you're venting your frustration with someone else on me. I don't know why.

I can understand why the pilot might have aborted the takeoff run. I can't understand why he began the takeoff run.

Any thoughts?

You know what. You're right, in a manner of speaking. I apologize to you and the board as well.

Just so you know, if you would have just stated "Overweight?" then yes,it would have been a question. But you said, "Overweight much?", which is interpreted as a sarcastic toned statement in the English language implying that in your opinion they were overloaded, and not an actual question. I can see how this might have ruffled a feather or two even if it's not how you intended it to read.

The private PA28-161 C-GVDH was taking off from CNR4 Tobermory, destined for CYKF Kitchener/Waterloo, with the pilot and three passengers on board. The weather was reported as very hot with gusty winds. After initial lift off the pilot levelled the aircraft to gain sufficient speed to climb out, but in doing so contacted the runway. After the brief runway contact the pilot determined that the aircraft was unlikely to clear the trees at the end of the runway, and chose to abort the take-off. Once the aircraft was back on the ground the pilot commenced heavy braking but was unable to stop the aircraft on the runway. As the aircraft slid off the runway end, the left wing
contacted a tree and was separated. The aircraft then rolled upside down and came to a stop just short of the trees. The four occupants were able to egress the aircraft without difficulty and had received only minor injuries during the accident. The aircraft was significantly damaged.
