On 9 August 2006, the Antonov Aviation Scientific Technical Complex informed the State Administration of Ukraine for Aviation Safety Oversight of Antonov aircraft whose service life had expired and which, therefore, were no longer considered to be airworthy. The An-12 (7345403) was one of those aircraft. It was repaired following the mishap and was reportedly later seen operating as EX-124.
