Narrative:Take-off aborted due to difference in engine N1 readings. The aircraft overran by ca. 40m. The nosegear collapsed. The aircraft was probably withdrawn from use as a result of this accident and ferried to Algiers for storage. In 2005 the airplane underwent a D-check and was seen for sale and in an airworthy condition at Algiers in July 2005.
