Summary: Just as the plane took off there was a pitch-up and stall resulting in the plane crashing into the water. The down elevator control cable failed at station 367 due to corrosion. The failure resulted from salt water induced corrosion. The aircraft had recently undergone a periodic inspection but the damage had apparently not been discovered.
