A Skybus Douglas DC-8-70, performing a cargo flight from SKRG, (Rionegro,Colombia) to KMIA, (Miami, USA) departed Rionegro’s runway 01 and became airborne just short of the runway end. The aircraft climbed out to safety and continued to Miami for a safe landing.
Two Spotters captured the take-off which have linked below.

And to show what happens when you dont take off in time, this copy from same airport shows what happens when you run out of runway when you get your calulations wrong. On June 7, 2006, a Tradewinds Airlines Boeing 747-200F (registration N922FT) had an engine failure on takeoff at SKRG. The pilot aborted but the plane overran the runway. None of the 6 on board were injured. The event was captured on airport surveillance cameras
