A Flydubai Boeing 737-8 MAX, registration A6-FML performing flight FZ-1746 from Belgrade (Serbia) to Dubai (United Arab Emirates), lined up Belgrade's runway 30 at taxiway D, departed at about 13:49L (12:49Z) but crossed the runway end just at a few feet AGL and climbed out slowly. The aircraft subsequently accelerated both IAS and climb and continued to Dubai for a landing without further incident.

A ground observer reported the aircraft began rotation about 300 meters short of the runway end but rotated very slowly, became airborne and crossed the runway end just a few feet above the surface, a one engine inoperative (OEI) departure would have been impossible. About 2 minutes after becoming airborne the crew queried with tower, whether they had departed taxiway E (TORA 3000 meters/9800 feet) or taxiway D (TORA 2085 meters/6800 feet), tower reported they had departed from taxiway D. The ground observer could not tell, whether the crew had requested to depart from intersection with taxiway D or E prior to or during taxi for departure.

ADS-B data suggest the aircraft crossed the runway end at less than 30 feet AGL at 156 knots over ground, reached 80 feet AGL about 400 meters/1350 feet past the runway end at 168 knots over ground (just past the localizer antenna), then joined a rather normal climb profile.

On Feb 23rd 2022 Serbia's Directorate of Civil Aviation announced they have opened an extraordinary inspection into Flydubai with respect to the 737-8 MAX occurrece of Feb 18th 2022 and stated: "As part of the investigation, the Directorate of Civil Aviation of the Republic of Serbia will send a request to investigate the events to the aviation authorities of the United Arab Emirates, in order to inform us about the results of the investigation, since they are in charge of the operator."
