Tradewinds International Airlines' Boeing 747-200F, a cargo flight, suffers an engine failure during takeoff. Ask any pilot: takeoff could be one of the best or worst times to lose an engine, depending on your position relative the runway from which you've taken off. Luckily for this 747, the failure occurred before the rotation (when the nose is lifted up), so the takeoff was aborted. Unfortunately, the runway was just a tad wet, causing the plane to basically slide off the end of the runway.
