A Pobeda Boeing 737-800, registration VQ-BTC performing flight DP-438 from Ufa to Moscow Vnukovo (Russia), was cleared to line up runway 32L and 39 seconds later was cleared for takeoff. The crew however queried ATC: "You sure?"

An Azimuth Sukhoi Superjet 100-95, registration RA-89136 performing flight A4-129 from Mineralnye Vody to Ufa (Russia), had touched down on runway 32L 94 seconds prior to line up clearance for DP-438, rolled out and needed to backtrack the runway to taxi to the terminal. The aircraft was still on the runway when the takeoff clearance was issued, and vacated the runway only 157 seconds after touch down, about 22 seconds after DP-438 queried tower "You sure?"

DP-438 received a renewed takeoff clearance and departed 46 seconds after receiving the first takeoff clearance.
