A cargo plane on take-off at Culiacán crashed, killing 9 people(3 crew members on board, a family of 4 and 2 soldiers on the ground). It happened a few hours ago, reports still unclear about the aircraft or how it happened. Registration is reported to be XA-TSL or XA-FL (I assume rather TFL) according to Reforma and El Universal http://www.eluniversal.com.mx/notas/435237.html

I would imagine that just having one tire on each main leg would make a blowout a critical control issue as it would pull very strongly to that side. I'm sure the crew tried their best but there is only so much you can do. RIP all.
Give me a mile of road and I can take you a mile. Give me a mile of runway and I can show you the world.
