A Tupolev 134AK passenger plane, operated by Aeroflot's Belarus division, was destroyed when it crashed shortly after takeoff from Minsk-2 International Airport (MSQ), Belarus.
Six seconds after becoming airborne from runway 13, at a height of 35 m, the no. 1 engine began losing power. The exhaust gas temperature rose quickly. The crew made a left hand climbing turn. One minute later, at an altitude of 220 m and a speed of 325 km/h the no. 2 engine flamed out. The airplane descended and the crew made a forced landing in a forest. A fire erupted.
Both engines had flamed out due to clear ice ingestion. Ice had formed on the wings and broke away on takeoff.
