Saab 2000, SE-LRA, aborted its take-off at low speed. There can be many reasons for deciding to perform a rejected take-off. Then the turboprop airplane turned around to reposition for take-off.

The Saab 2000 is a regional aircraft, Swedish-built, carries 50 passengers and is one of the fastest turboprop airliners. Its high cruise speed is near jet speed at 680 km/h what gave the Saab 2000 the nickname "Concordino". The aircraift is equipped with two Rolls-Royce Allison AE 2100A turboprop engines, each driving a six-bladed propeller.
