Watching this just makes my blood run cold.

The photography in these two videos is horrible, but you definitely get the drama. The runway was just a bit over 5,000' in length.

20 December 2016; AeroSucre 727-200; HK-4544, flight LMI2933; near Puerto Carreño, Colombia:

The aircraft was on a nonscheduled domestic cargo flight from Puerto Carreño to Bogotá, Colombia. Just after takeoff, the aircraft crossed a road that was about 100 meters beyond the end of the runway, apparently hitting at least one fence and dragging the rear part of the aircraft on the ground. The aircraft became airborne, but did not gain a significant amount of altitude. The aircraft was videotaped making a descending right turn just before it crashed and caught fire. The crash site was about 10 miles (16 km) from the airport. Five of the six crew members were killed.
