Narrative:
En route from Lvov to Yerevan, the airplane entered an area of severe turbulence. It landed safely, but had sustained severe structural deformation caused by excessive G loads (+3.05/-0.65). The Tupolev was consequently written off and the airframe was used for fire tests at Yerevan during the investigation into the crash of Tu-134AK CCCP-65120 July 2, 1986 which had been caused by an in-flight fire in the aft equipment bay.
