A Tupolev Tu-134, similar to both aircraft involved in the August 1979 (1979-08) mid-air collision, is seen here on final approach to Zurich Airport in 1983.

Aeroflot, the Soviet Union's national carrier, experienced a number of serious accidents and incidents during the 1970s. The airline's worst accident during the decade took place in August 1979 (1979-08), when two Tupolev Tu-134s were involved in a mid-air collision over the Ukrainian city then named Dniprodzerzhinsk, with the loss of 178 lives. Including this event, there were nine deadly incidents with more than 100 fatalities, while the total recorded number of casualties was 3,545 for the decade.

Almost all of the events shown below occurred within the Soviet Union. The company was reluctant to publicise deadly accidents at the time and tended to admit only those that took place beyond the borders of the Soviet Union or ones in which foreigners were included in the list of fatalities.[1][2] The airline's policy of suppressing of information on accidents during this period means that casualty figures are likely to be higher than shown in the published record, as the fate of the occupants aboard many aircraft that were written off was not publicly disclosed.

The Antonov An-10, which entered the fleet in 1957,[3] was withdrawn from service following an accident that occurred in May 1972 (1972-05) and killed all 122 people on board. In the decade, the company lost six aircraft of the type. Other types lost in accidents/incidents were 142 Antonov An-2s, 17 Antonov An-12s, two Antonov An-22s, 31 Antonov An-24s, three Antonov An-26s, two Avia 14s, one Beriev Be-30, 14 Ilyushin Il-14s, 19 Ilyushin Il-18s, two Ilyushin Il-62s, two Let L-410 Turbolets, six Lisunov Li-2s, 16 Tupolev Tu-104s, eight Tupolev Tu-124s, six Tupolev Tu-134s, seven Tupolev Tu-154s, and 27 Yakovlev Yak-40s. This totals to 311 aircraft lost in this decade.
