A BAC One-Eleven 515FB passenger jet, operated by Paninternational, was destroyed in a forced landing on a road, shortly after takeoff from Hamburg-Fuhlsbüttel Airport (HAM), Germany. One crew member and 21 passengers were killed. Five crew members and 94 passengers survived the accident.
Paninternational flight 112 was a charter flight from Hannover, Germany, to Málaga, Spain, with an intermediate stop at Hamburg.
While on the ground at Hamburg, five water canisters were offloaded from the cargo hold. The canisters contained demineralized water and were used to fill the water tank near the engines. For better engine performance during takeoff a water/methanol mixture can be injected into the fuel-air mixture. The mixture makes the air cooler and denser after passing the compressor, ahead of the combustion chamber.
When the airplane was prepared for the flight to Málaga, taxi clearance was given to runway 34. Takeoff was commenced at 18:18. The captain opted for a takeoff with injection in view of the high temperature and the actual take-off weight.
Reaching a speed of V1 during takeoff, the crew noted a rise in engine temperature. Takeoff was continued. The left-hand engine then failed, immediately followed by the right-hand engine. The airplane was climbing through an altitude of 300 m and the pilot pushed the nose down to gain speed. The engines could not be restarted, forcing the crew to carry out an emergency landing on the Hamburg-Kiel Autobahn E45.
Due to the high sink rate the jet touched down hard. The left hand main gear collapsed. The crew applied brakes to keep the airplane on the road. It then struck concrete pillars of an overpass, causing the flight deck to separate. The fuselage skidded and broke up, bursting into flames.
The female first officer of the flight survived the accident. She later died in a Cessna Citation accident on May 31, 1987.

Investigation revealed that two of the five water canisters actually contained kerosene. The canisters had been misplaced at Düsseldorf the night before and loaded on board the plane.
