SummaryThe aircraft overran the runway and crashed into a revine after an aborted takeoff due to a blown tire. The No. 3 tire failed on takeoff and debris damaged the right gear 'down and locked' switch, causing a gear unsafe indication in the cockpit. Debris was also ingested by the No. 2 engine causing a loss of reverse thrust during the rejected takeoff.
