Narrative:
The Boeing 737 had taken off from Huambo and was climbing through 8000 feet when an explosion occurred in the rear of the cabin. The crew returned to Huambo for an emergency landing. Because of severed hydraulic lines it was impossible to extend the flaps. The aircraft touched down fast and overran the runway by 180m. Just 3 months prior to this accident, TAAG had lost another Boeing 737.

Classification:
Forced landing on runway
