On November 28, 2002, two shoulder-launched Strela 2 ( SA-7 ) surface-to-air heat-seeking missiles were fired at a chartered Boeing 757-300 airliner owned by Israel-based Arkia Airlines as it took off from Moi International Airport in Mombasa , Kenya. Arkia had a regular weekly charter service flying tourists between Tel Aviv and Mombasa . Kenyan police discovered a Strela missile launcher and two missile casings in the Changamwe area of Mombasa, about 2 kilometers ( miles) from the airport. The missiles missed the airliner and the pilots decided to continue to Israel. The airliner landed at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv about five hours later, escorted by Israeli F-15 fighter jets. Following the shootdown attempt and a simultaneous attack on an Israeli-owned hotel in Mombasa , all Israeli flights between Israel and Kenya were cancelled. Although plans were made in 2014 and 2016 for flights between the two countries to resume, as of May 2017 flights have yet to resume. [38] [39] [40]

The flight testing came to an abrupt end after only three flights, when a serious malfunction in the fuel tanks, interrupting sufficient fuel supply during steep descent, was discovered. The question of whether this design flaw contributed to the crash of the first prototype is still unanswered. There were still about 20 aircraft in production for the East German state airline Deutsche Lufthansa until mid-1961. At this time, the East German government stopped all aeronautical industry activities, as the Soviet Union which promoted its own design, the Tu-124 , did not want to buy any of these aircraft or support any further development.
