A R'Komor Fokker 50, registration D6-AIB performing a flight from Moheli to Anjouan (Comores), was accelerating for takeoff from Moheli's runway 31 when the crew rejected takeoff at high speed but overran the end of the runway and came to a stop off the runway on soft ground amidst bushes with the right main gear collapsed. There are a number of injuries reported, varying from serious to minor. The aircraft sustained substantial damage.

According to ground witnesses the aircraft suffered a problem with one of its landing gears/tyres, possibly hitting an obstacle, prior to veering off the runway.
