A Dniproavia Embraer ERJ-145 on behalf of Aerosvit, registration UR-DNR performing flight VV-6 from Dnepropetrovsk to Kiev (Ukraine), was accelerating for takeoff when the crew received a nose gear indication and rejected takeoff. The aircraft returned to the apron.

Ukraine's Ministry of Transport reported in their monthly bulletin that subsequent examination of the aircraft found no fault with the nose gear assembly. However given the state of the aerodrome the commission considered the likely cause of the occurrence being the runway condition featuring slabs designed for air force and civil aircraft operation with larger wheels featuring large gaps to permit slab extension during high summer temperatures. However, the commission said, the runway surface needs to be designed for safe operation of modern aircraft with smaller wheels as well and such should use plates of more rigid design addressing the issues of gaps and height differences.
