A Tassili Travail Aerien Let L-420, registration ZS-OUE performing a charter flight from Hassi Messaoud to Bir Seba (Algeria) with 10 passengers and 2 crew, was accelerating for takeoff from runway 36 at about 07:45L (06:45Z) when the crew needed to reject takeoff.

There were no injuries. The aircraft was later lifted, the nose gear was re-extended and the aircraft was towed to a hangar.

Ground observers reported the aircraft was accelerating when the nose gear gave way prompting the crew to reject takeoff, the aircraft skidded to a stop on its nose.
