Reg.:  CC-BHB      cn: 7864
Aboard:  108   Fatalities: 0      Ground: 2
Route:  Lima - Juliaca
Details: 

The Airbus A320 collided with a fire truck while it was accelerating for takeoff from Jorge Chávez International Airport in Lima, Peru. The plane was accelerating on runway 16 when it collided with a fire truck, which crossed the active runway without authorization. The crew rejected the takeoff at high speed (at about 130 knots) but wasn't able to avoid contact with the fire truck. As a result of the collision, the right main gear collapsed and caught fire due to the resulting friction against the runway. The aircraft veered right towards the right-hand runway edge coming to a stop partially off the runway about 2500 meters down the runway. Everyone on board was able to evacuate the plane, however, some sustained injuries. Two firefighters in the fire truck were killed.
