Ural Airlines Airbus A-321 Crash Lands Into Russian Field

An Airbus A-321 operated by Ural Airlines (Flight U6-178) from Moscow Zhukovsky (Russia) to Simferopol (Russia) made a crash landing into a corn field less than 3 miles past the end of the runway in Moscow. The flight was carrying 226 passengers and 7 crew. All passengers and crew are reported safe, however 10 sustained some injuries from the landing.

The Ural Airlines aircraft departed from Moscow Zhukovsky and was climbing through 750 feet when the aircraft flew into a flock of birds and ingested birds into both engines. Both engines failed and one began emitting noises as if the engine was spooling up and down. The aircraft crew stopped the climb and attempted to land the aircraft in a cornfield with the landing gear retracted.

Once the aircraft made a successful crash landing into the cornfield, the passengers and crew evacuated via the emergency slides to safety on the ground. There were no fires, no leaking fuel, and no fatalities. Eight buses were sent to the crash site to transport the passengers back to Zhukovsky Airport.

Russian State Prosecutors have opened a criminal investigation.
