Descripción:
A Learjet 25B, N47MR, operated by American Jets, Inc., was substantially damaged when both tires blew during the takeoff roll from Colorado Springs Municipal Airport (COS), Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time of the accident. The lifeguard flight was being operated on an instrument flight rules flight plan. The pilot, co-pilot, two crew members and a passenger reported no injuries.
During the takeoff roll, the airplane began to vibrate on the right side and then the right tire blew. The left tire blew shortly thereafter. The captain maintained directional control and the drag chute was deployed. The airplane came to rest at the departure end of runway 17L. A postaccident investigation revealed that metal from the landing gear penetrated the wings and the fuselage was wrinkled. An examination of the airplane systems revealed no anomalies.
