An Embraer EMB-110P1 Bandeirante cargo plane was due to perform a flight at 22:30 hours local time. Departure was delayed by two hours due to poor weather. The crew consisted of two current captains in training and an instructor.
During takeoff from runway 01 the main door opened. The takeoff was aborted and the left engine shut down as a precaution.
The pilots made a 180 degree turn to check for damage and close the door. As the aircraft was backtracking on the runway for a new departure, debris was noted on the runway. It appeared a briefcase had fallen out, hitting and damaging the no.1 propeller.
