A SkyBus Cargo DC-8-73CF cargo plane experienced a very long takeoff roll at Rionegro/Medellín-José María Córdova Airport in Colombia.
The aircraft became airborne just short of the end of runway 01 and climbed away safely.
Takeoff Distance Available for runway 01 is 3700 meters, consisting of 3500 meters of paved runway and a 200 meter grass clearway. The final 2000 meters of the runway has a 0,78% upslope. Elevation of the runway end is 2141 meters. Terrain rises to an elevation of about 2170 meters within 1500 meters of the runway end.

The Colombian authorities, Aerocivil, investigated the occurrence and decided to ban SkyBus Cargo from further flights into Colombia, starting January 24.
In a statement, Aerocivil reported that the captain of the aircraft self-dispatched instead of using the services of Tampa Cargo, which was authorized to provide the dispatch services at Rionegro.
