A Tupolev 134A passenger plane was damaged beyond repair in a takeoff accident at Amman (ADJ), Jordan. The airplane carried seven crew members and 78 passengers. All passengers and all but two crew members survived the accident. However, seven people inside a building died when the airplane collided.
Aeroflot flight SU512 was departing from Amman on an international flight to Beirut (BEY), Lebanon and Moscow. The pilot-in-command had the impression that the speed dropped due to failure of one engine (although both engines were working normally) and aborted the takeoff at a speed of 265 km/h. V1 speed was calculated as 252 km/h. The Tu-134 overran the runway, came down the slope of a ravine, collided with trees and eventually struck a one-storey concrete building 290 metres behind the runway threshold and broke into three parts.
