Narrative:
LATAM flight 2213, an Airbus A320neo, CC-BHB, sustained substantial damage when it collided with a firetruck during takeoff from runway 16 at Lima-Jorge Chávez International Airport (LIM), Peru.
There were no fatalities inside the plane, but two firefighters inside the truck sustained fatal injuries, a third firefighter sustatined serious injuries.

Video and ADS-B data suggests that three ARFF vehicles departed their station on the west side of the runway. The first fire truck entered the active runway 16 at taxiway B, around 1150 meters from the runway threshold.
At that time flight LA2213 was accellerating for takeoff. The no.2 (right-hand) engine of the aircraft impacted the firetruck at a ground speed of around 127 kts. The right gear collapsed and a fire erupted.
The aircraft slewed to a stop on the runway, about 1600 m past the point of impact, and all 102 occupants evacuated.

The airport operator, Lima Airport Partners (LAP), stated that the firetrucks were part of a pre-planned response time exercise. The air traffic control agency CORPAC had confirmed the starting time of the exercise, 15:10 hours.
