Circumstances:

Takeoff was rejected by crew after tyres on the nosegear failed. The aircraft did not stop before the end of runway and it overran before coming to rest 577 metres further on. The aircraft was damaged beyond repair but nobody was injured. The Board of investigation said that the decision of the captain to reject takeoff was too late. The operator's technicians did not perform a good job with maintenance prior to accident.
