An Antonov Design Bureau Antonov AN-124 Ruslan, registration UR-82072 performing flight ADB-5001 from Larnaca (Cyprus) to Leipzig (Germany), was accelerating for takeoff from Larnaca's runway 22 when the crew rejected takeoff at high speed (about 130 knots over ground) due to the failure of the #3 engine (D18T, inboard right). The aircraft slowed safely and returned to the apron.

The aircraft is still on the ground in Larnaca about 26 hours after the rejected takeoff.
