A Polet Aviakompania Antonov AN-148-100, registration RA-61709 performing flight YQ-8905 from Voronezh (Russia) to Heraklion (Greece) with 72 passengers and 6 crew, was climbing out of Voronezh when a white trail was observed from the right hand wing prompting the crew to suspect a fuel leak supported by abnormal fuel guage readings. The crew decided to return to Voronezh, burned off fuel and landed the aircraft safely about 80 minutes after departure.

A replacement AN-148 registration RA-61710 reached Heraklion with a delay of 3.5 hours.
