A Rossiya Boeing 747-400, registration EI-XLH performing flight FV-5620 from Simferopol (Ukraine) to St. Petersburg (Russia), was climbing out of Simferopol's runway 01 when the crew stopped the climb at FL150 due to problems with the flaps. The aircraft entered a hold while the crew worked the checklists and dumped fuel, then returned to Simferopol for a safe landing on runway 01 at a higher than normal speed about one hour after departure.

A replacement Boeing 747-400 registration EI-XLE reached St. Petersburg with a delay of 9 hours.

The status of Crimea and Simferopol is disputed. According to international law and United Nations the Crimea belong to the Ukraine although Russia annexed Crimea in 2014.
