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

This could point to this one

Apparently, it never made it off the ground.

Airport closed, incoming President Calderón had to divert to GDL and canceled a visit to Culiacán.

Very sad news.

Update: Aircraft never left the ground, crossed a highway impacting several cars and ended crashing into several houses.
Death toll remains the same.

Are these aircraft not designed to have a blow out and still maintain control? (maybe a dull question but I thought they would be able to?)



I reject your reality and substitute my own!

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.  Sad

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.
