Emergency Landing of Tu-154M (14 pics)

Posted in Pictures   9 Sep 2010   / 8946 views

Russian Tu-154M jet with 72 passengers aboard and the flight crew made an emergency landing at an abandoned military airfield. The airplane lost radio signal, its electrical system malfunctioned and power failed. The speed was quite high, but the flight crew spotted the unmarked airfield and was able to land safely. The runway was only 1,300 meters long and the jet overran it carving its way through the woods. It’s a miracle that no one was hurt! Pilots did a great job and deserve a big respect.

My hat's off to the crew, 6000ft for such a heavy weight is nothing but skills. Luck because there was no fire, but skills regardless. A little shorter and we could send them a tailhook club membership card.

So what next? Did they just like, leave it there? How do you tow a plane back through a forest?

all passengers were placed to the nearest motel and scholl with sport-hall where they were waiting for chance to fly away.
aircompany still tries to find the way to get the plane back, some companies have already offered to make a hotel or/and a restaurant from this plane.
