Cargo plane crashes in Colombia
A Boeing 727 cargo plane, operated by Aerosucre Colombia, was destroyed when it crashed shortly after takeoff from Puerto Carreño Airport in Colombia. One of the six crew members survived the accident.
The aircraft took off from runway 24, a 1780 m long runway, about 17:20.
Videos circulating online show the accident aircraft on takeoff. The airplane fails to lift off the runway and crosses the airport perimeter fence and road in a nose up attitude. The aircraft then became airborne and is seen in a right hand turn losing altitude until it impacted flat terrain, bursting into flames.
Distance from the end of the runway to the perimeter road is 95 meters. Aerocivil reports the aircraft crashed 10 miles from the airport.
A video posted on Youtube in October 2016 shows a takeoff of an Aerosucre Boeing 727 at Puerto Carreño Airport barely clearing the perimeter fence.
