That seemed like a very long take-off roll. Does anyone know what happened?

Looks like an engine blew out.

I watched the video and didn't notice anyone getting out. By the way cockpit was shown consumed by fire, I'm surprised to find out there were no casualties. Glad everyone got out alright.

About the 3:30 mark I see a whole crowd of people running away in a line from the fuselage. Hard to miss it.

Absolutely incredible footage!
Very glad everyone made it out, even though it looked like it would have turned out another way....
Amazing that in the beginning the a/c is lined up for take-off, and 9 minutes later firefighters are trying to extinguish the flames from the burning remnants. Very eerie.

For me there´s just on question remaining
Why did the crew abort T/O at Vr when already rotating (plus no sufficient runway remaining to stop) ? ? ?
Is the TU-134´s single engine performance too poor to continue in such a case ??? This is hard to believe since commercial a/c won´t get certfied if not able to continue single engine !!! Don´t know if russian authorities at that time had different rules...

The Tu-134 cannot take off with only 1 engine. Same counts for DC-9, MD-80, F-100,...

If I remember correctly the reason was a bird strike.

Complete nonsense. Of course a DC9, MD80 or F100 can takeoff after an engine failure. To elaborate, a DC9, MD80 or F100 can continue after losing an engine above V1. Below V1 you hit the brakes of course. But to claim a western-built twin is doomed if it loses an engine during takeoff is plain wrong and obviously so. It never fails to amuse and irritate when people make such utterly wrong statements with such authority.

(I have no reason to believe a Tu134 can't make fly away in a similar sitation. Perhaps they aborted above V1 in the Simferopol accident because they thought, or knew, that the aircraft had sustained additional malfunctions that rendered the aircraft unflyable.)

Look at the tree-tops at around 0:56 and flags at 1:00: it seems to me the aircraft had a stiff tailwind, maybe making things a lot worse to lift-off on one engine ?! Indeed, no one was killed and only three were injured ...

Quite a coincidence that the engine blew out at the very moment the aircraft began to rotate.
