Détails:
TAME Flight 120 was a regular flight from Quito to Cali with an intermediate stop at Tulcán. The aircraft taxied to runway 35, a 3120 metres long asphalt runway, and the crew was cleared for takeoff at 09:39. At a point 2110 metres down the runway, while the airplane was accelerating through 125 kts IAS, both tires of the left hand main undercarriage blew. The takeoff was abandoned and the pilots managed to keep the airplane on the runway. As it overran the end of the runway, the nose gear collapsed. The aircaft came to rest 81 metres past the end of the runway. A small fire erupted in the area of the left hand main gear. This was quickly contained by the fire service.

CAUSA PROBABLE: "La Junta Investigadora de Accidentes estima que la probable causa de este suceso fue la falta de una positiva respuesta a la acción de frenado, asociada con la explosión de los neumáticos 1 y 2 del tren principal izquierdo durante la carrera de despegue." (The lack of a positive response to use the brakes following the explosion of tires nr 1 and 2 of the left main undercarriage during the take-off run.)
