A Dniproavia Embraer ERJ-145 on behalf of Aerosvit, registration UR-DNG performing flight VV-205 from Kiev (Ukraine) to Sofia (Bulgaria), rejected takeoff from Kiev at high speed (107 KIAS) when the Multi Function Display #2 (MFD2) faded away. The aircraft slowed safely and returned to the apron.

Ukraine's Ministry of Transport reported in their monthly bulletin that the commander's decision to reject takeoff was in compliance with the manuals. Maintenance however was unable to replicate the failure and was unable to determine a reason. Upon recommendation by the aircraft manufacturer the MFD2 was replaced. The manufacturer stated that the display tends to develop massive failures after 10,000 hours of operating time, although the maintenance manual stated 10,600 hours. The investigation commission determined the failure of the MFD2 was the result of internal instability following long lifetime that exceeded the average use of MFDs.
