Airline: Spanair
Flight No.: JK5022
Aircraft: McDonnell Douglas MD-82

The aircraft [EC-HFP], on a scheduled passenger flight from Madrid to Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, crashed on takeoff from runway 36L at Madrid Barajas Airport. The aircraft had aborted a previous takeoff attempt and returned to the gate due to an engine problem, and crashed during its second takeoff attempt approximately an hour and a half later. The MD-82 came to rest between runways 36R and 36L with the fuselage broken in several pieces, exploding in flames and igniting a large brush fire in the vicinity of the wreck site.
