• Boeing B737 Engine Failure On takeoff Followed by CFIT

  • During takeoff from Tamanrasset (Algeria), a sharp thump was heard just after rotation. The left engine had just suffered a contained burst. The airplane swung to the left. The Captain took over the controls. The airplane lost speed progressively, stalled and crashed, with the landing gear still extended, about one thousand six hundred and forty-five meters from the takeoff point, to the left of the runway extended centerline.
