Carrying 32tons of paint and medical supplies for Guinee, the Ilyushin freighter tried to takeoff from Oostende. During the takeoff roll the crew noticed an engine fire warning and aborted. The aircraft overran the runway by 40 m and came to rest in a field with its nosegear collapsed and the left wingtip touching the ground. The aircraft is presumably damaged beyond repair.
