Investigating agency: BEA
At night in VMC conditions, the crew of flight AMV6104 to Luxor lined up from intersection Y11 on runway 27L at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport. The runway distance available for take-off was temporarily reduced because of construction work. During the takeoff run, the airplane struck some provisional lights at the end of the runway then, during the rotation, destroyed some markers on the safety-barrier positioned in front of the construction zone. It took off before a provisional blast fence and continued its flight to its destination.

The event was caused by the crew’s failure to take into account the length of the runway available for takeoff.
The following factors may have contributed to the event:
-ˆ the inadequacy of the OPT utilisation procedures set up by the operator AMC to prevent such an error;
-ˆ the impaired level of crew performance, specifically related to the pilots’ fatigue.
