An Aero Mongolia Fokker 50, registration JU-8257 performing a charter flight from Oyu Tolgai [ZMOT] to Ulaanbaatar (Mongolia) with 34 people on board, was accelerating for takeoff from Oyu Tolgai at 12:33L (04:33Z) when the aircraft veered right off the runway taking out runway edge lights with its nose gear and propeller while the crew steered the aircraft back onto the runway and stopped the aircraft. No injuries occurred, the aircraft received substantial damage.

Australia's ATSB assisted Mongolia's Civil Aviation Authority in the ongoing investigation by verifying the installation of runway lights. The ATSB reported that the aircraft veered right off the runway and struck a frangible, stake mounted runway edge light with its nosewheel and propeller resulting in substantial damage to the aircraft.

Initial information suggests the aircraft experienced a sudden gust of wind causing it to veer off the runway.

No weather data are available.
