One of the main wheel tyres burst on takeoff. The takeoff was continued and a holding pattern was flown for 2 hours to burn up fuel. The aircraft then landed far down the Bogotá runway and when an overrun seemed unavoidable, the pilot undercarriage was retracted. The Caravelle slid past the runway end, crossing a ditch before coming to rest 100 m further on. The aircraft was carrying a cargo of 70 boxes of dynamite.
