IAC: Seagulls became the reason for the A321 crash landing in a cornfield in the Moscow region in 2019 KXan 36 Daily News

The investigation, which took place over three years, showed that the collision with a flock of seagulls caused mechanical damage to both engines and “the impossibility of continuing the flight with the actual configuration of the aircraft (landing gear not retracted) and forced landing outside the airfield,” reports TASS, citing the document.

It is also specified that the district’s landfills and reservoirs became a factor in the appearance of birds near the Zhukovsky airport.

At the same time, the MAK report claims that the pilots’ actions during an emergency were “clear signs of disorganization” due to psychological stress.

Recall that on August 15, 2019, two engines failed on the Ural Airlines Airbus A321, en route from Moscow to Simferopol. None of the 226 passengers on board were seriously injured. And the phrase of the chief flight attendant Dmitry Ivlitsky – “we go to the right, towards the sun, along the rows of corn” – became winged.
