An Antonov An-124-100 suffered a runway excursion after an emergency return to Novosibirsk-Tolmachevo Airport (OVB), Russia.
The An-124, registration RA-82042, operated on Volga-Dnepr flight 4066 from Seoul-Incheon Airport in South Korea to Vienna-Schwechat Airport in Austria with an en route stop at Novosibirsk-Tolmachevo Airport, Russia. It was delivering 84 tons of cargo of auto parts. The aircraft arrived at Novosibirsk on November 12 at 17:39 hours local time.
The following day, the aircraft was prepared for the continuing flight to Vienna. The aircraft took off from runway 25 at 12:09 hours local time (05:09 UTC). During takeoff, the no.2 engine (Lotarev D-18T) suffered an uncontained failure.
This resulted in the failure of the power supply of the aircraft, radio communications, braking system and a limitation in the the thrust control of the remaining engines.
The flight crew performed a low altitude turn for a landing back on runway 25 (LDA 3597 meters). The aircraft was not able to stop on the runway and overran, comping to rest 300 m pas the end. The nose landing gear had collapsed.

Fragments of what appeared to be the fan disk were found inside a warehouse near the airport. The aircraft itself also sustained damage. Debris had penetrated the left hand side of the fuselage and leading edge slats. A hole in the right hand top fuselage suggests debris had gone through and through.
