A Transstates Airlines Embraer ERJ-145 on behalf of United, registration N14116 performing flight UA-4629 from Fargo,ND to Denver,CO (USA), was accelerating for takeoff from Fargo's runway 36 when both right main tyres became damaged. The crew rejected takeoff, slowed the aircraft safely and brought the aircraft to a stop on the runway. The aircraft subsequently was able to vacate the runway and taxi to the apron.

The airport reported the aircraft was accelerating for takeoff when both right hand rear tyres blew. The runway was inspected. The flight was cancelled, the passengers were rebooked onto other flights.

On Jan 10th 2017 the FAA reported the aircraft sustained unknown damage to the landing gear on takeoff.

The FAA erroneously reported the aircraft involved carried the tail number N11137. That aircraft had not been in Fargo at the time of the occurrence according to radar data. Radar data, pictorial and video evidence as well as the airline identify the aircraft involved as N14116.
