In a cascading disaster worthy of a movie ending, this Concorde flight ran over runway debris during takeoff causing a tire to blow while also puncturing a fuel tank. A combination of the fire and engine failure caused the plane to crash into a nearby hotel two minutes later. The 113 people who died included all 109 on the plane and four people in the hotel.

Technical note on data: The time is specifically given as 4:43 PM CET, but Paris was on CEDT at the time. From the way the data is stated, I think the "Central European Time" statement is too casual and should be understood to be the local time in Paris. Otherwise (e.g., if the airport were required to never use Daylight Saving Time), the chart is an hour off. Interpreting this as 4:43 PM CEDT, the crash occurred as Saturn was setting, opposite a more widely rising Pluto.
