The Fokker 100 departed runway 05R at Almaty Airport on a regular schedule service (flight Z9/BEK2100) to Astana-Nursultan Nazarbayev Airport, carrying 93 passengers and a crew of five. Shortly after liftoff, while in initial climb at an altitude of 50-100 feet, the airplane lost height and veered to the right, struck a concrete wall then crashed onto a house located in a residential area, about 500 meters south of the runway 23R threshold. The airplane broke into several parts and 12 occupants were killed, among them the captain. At the time of the accident, the visibility was about one km with smoke and mist.
