Narrative:
A Dassault Falcon 20 corporate jet, registered in Mexico as XA-PCC, was damaged in a runway excursion during takeoff from Eagle County Airport, CO (EGE).
Takeoff was aborted when the airplane blew the left main gear tyre. The captain was unable to stop the airplane in the distance remaining. The airplane proceeded past the departure end of the runway and past the overrun area, 400 feet, into deep snow. Both landing gear collapsed and the right wing was buckled.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The flight crew’s improper preflight inspection and failure to remove the main landing gear wheel chock, resulting in damage and subsequent failure of the main landing gear tire during the takeoff roll."
