“In Koltsovo they were received by the deputy general director for the organization of flight work, Sergei Glazkov, the commander of the 2nd aviation squadron, Yuri Sherstnev, and the commander of the A319/320/321 aircraft, Dmitry Goncharenko,” the service reports. of press. Ural Airlines reported.

The Airbus A320 was flying from Sochi to Omsk when a technical fault occurred. Landing in Omsk was dangerous due to the short air speed, and the plane was sent to Novosibirsk, and when it became clear that perhaps there was not enough fuel, the captain decided to land in a field.

“When we planted corn 2.5 meters high, it was not clear what was underneath. But here everything is visible. The landing on the chassis is soft, clean and without overloads. To prevent the wheels from getting stuck, keep the foot suspended front as much as possible and lower it gently… We teach this to the pilots at the training complex,” said Sergei Skuratov, the airline’s director.

The crew of the accident ship will be temporarily suspended from their flights during the investigation; this is a common practice. The circumstances of the incident are being investigated within the framework of a criminal case opened under Article 263 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation – “violation of traffic safety rules and exploitation of air transport.” Flight data recording units and fuel samples were seized.

It is difficult to say how long the investigation will last: for example, the investigation into the “miracle in the cornfield” on August 15, 2019, when a Ural Airlines A321 landed near Zhukovsky airport after a collision with a bird, it was completed only three years after the accident. Furthermore, the final report was never officially published.
