Glad to see there were no injuries. I flew jumpseat on this exact aircraft, on the same flight (Coca to Quito) 2 months ago, a very memorable flight, shame to see it like this .

Looks like the left forward pax door didn't fully open. That's always been a fear of mine when flying on a/c with integrated passenger steps.

ICARO HC-CDT crash in Quito UIO / SEQU

According to the Icarus´ CEO, Guido Saltos, the pilot of the airplane, Ciro Chacon, abandoned the take off because a warning light indicated a fire in the cargo hold.

eluniverso.com - Susto en Quito por nuevo accidente al salir un avión - Sep. 23, 2008 - EL PAÍS

The ill fated plane hit the ILS antennas at the north end of the runway and smashed 9 of the 12 antennas. ILS in SEQU is disabled for the next 30 days. Media reports (rumors) say that those flights that cannot land in SEQU due to poor visibility are diverted to the Latacunga air base some 50 km south of Quito.

A similar accident happened on November 9th, 2007 with an AIRBUS A340-600 on the same runway.

Thank you for your comment. The AIRBUS overshoot this runway on landing. It disabled the ILS for weeks. Domestic flights were diverted to Latacunga. That was similar. The difference, after the 346 accident UIO was closed for more days.
