    having watched the videos I think they hit the flock on rotation with the engine thrust rapidly degrading after that, so no time for anything besides steering to an open field, just brilliant job

    whatever happened to "brace brace heads down grab your ankles" x 50?

    besides that, just a tremendous job by the captain today, a true hero

  • Moscow Passenger Plane Catches Fire, Crash-Lands in Cornfield.

    A Russian passenger plane performed an emergency landing near Moscow shortly after takeoff on Thursday after birds were sucked into its engines, causing it to catch fire, the airline and state media reported.
    The Airbus 321, with 234 people on board, made an emergency landing near Zhukovsky International Airport southeast of Moscow, the state-run RIA Novosti news agency reported, citing Russia's Emergency Situations Ministry. The Ural Airlines flight was traveling from Moscow to Crimea's Simferopol. Up to 23 casualties have been reported.


    “There are currently 23 injured, including nine children. The children’s ages are between two and nine,” an unnamed source in the emergency services told the state-run TASS news agency. The injured have been taken to nearby hospitals, the report added.
    Ural Airlines said on its Twitter account that no one was hurt when its U6178 flight made the emergency landing.
    “There was an emergency landing in Zhukovsky. Birds got into both engines. The engines turned off and the crew carried out the landing ... one kilometer away from the runway,” TASS quoted Ural Airlines' general director, Sergei Skuratov, as saying.
    One of the engines caught fire after birds were sucked into them but the fire didn't spread into the passenger cabin, TASS quoted an unnamed emergency services source as saying.

    Passenger-filmed videos showed people evacuating the aircraft as it sat in a cornfield near the airport.
    One passenger, Fyodor Galin, told the Mash Telegram channel that the plane began to shake about 5 seconds after takeoff.
    “Then the lights started flashing and there was a burning smell. The plane landed and we all ran out,” Galin can be seen saying in a video published by the Telegram channel.
    State television said the maneuver was being dubbed the "miracle over Ramensk," a reference to the Moscow region district where the plane came down.
    The Komsomolskaya Pravda tabloid lauded pilot Damir Yusupov as a "hero," saying he had saved 233 lives, "having masterfully landed a plane without its landing gear with a failing engine right in a cornfield."
    Some drew comparisons with U.S. Airways Flight 1549 which performed a landing on the Hudson River in 2009 after striking a flock of geese.
    Russia's Investigative Committee has opened a criminal case into violation of air traffic safety and aircraft operation rules following the landing, Interfax reported.
    Safety concerns have plagued Russia's airline industry since the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union, though standards are widely recognized to have sharply risen on international routes in particular in recent years.
