# Has a micro-burst or wind shear caused fatalities on takeoff?

Delta Flight 191 at Dallas-Fort Worth (1985), TANS Perú Flight 204 in Peru (2005), FedEx Express Flight 80 in Japan (2009), and Eastern Air Lines Flight 66 at New York's JFK, are all examples of aircraft fatalities due to wind shear or micro-bursts during approach.

Have there been any airliner fatalities due to micro-bursts or wind shear on takeoff?

UPDATE: As a hobby, I have spent my life following aircraft accidents. At the outset of this question, I was unaware and doubted any such occurrences had happened. The answers have certainly been an eye opener and shows the breath of knowledge this group has.

So far:

Canadair C-4 Argonaut three crew and 29 passengers killed
Pan Am Flight 759 all 145 on board and 8 on the ground killed
Spantax CV-990 crash of EC-BNM off Arlanda (1970)
Continental Flight 426, Denver, (1975)
Continental Flight 63, Tucson, (1977)
United Flight 663, Denver, (1984)
(possibly - AeroméxicoFlight 2431) (2018)

• Does the 1970 Spantax CV-990 crash of EC-BNM off Arlanda count?

• Probably a bit early to be sure, but it seems yesterday's Aeroméxico Connect Flight 2431 suffered this issue on take-off. Aug 1, 2018 at 11:56
• I had the same thought... interesting. Aug 1, 2018 at 14:16
• Have you done any research at the NTSB Aviation Accident database? ntsb.gov/_layouts/ntsb.aviation/index.aspx Aug 1, 2018 at 14:42
