When the strap on boosters separated at 2 minutes, 45 seconds into the flight, one failed to separate and push away properly. It impacted the second stage booster, causing a fuel tank to rupture and the rocket to lose attitude control. The flight was aborted and the crew landed safely. Abort took place about 50 km and an apogee of 93 km was reached, qualifying as a spaceflight by USAF standards.

Landing location was 20km East of Jezkazgan, Kazakhstan
