A Brazilian air force Boeing 707 went off the runway on its takeoff roll at Toussaint Louverture International Airport in Haiti Sunday but none of the 121 people onboard was injured. One of the engines reportedly caught fire and the aircraft left the runway. The aircraft was totaled. Details are sketchy but the airport was closed for a time and some flights were delayed.

The airplane was reportedly carrying United Nations peacekeepers. It was one of four 707s, designated KC-137s, operated by the Brazilian air force.
