A malfunction forced a Russian Ural Airlines plane, carrying about 160 passengers from Sochi to Omsk, to make an emergency landing in a field close to Kamensk (Saratov region). According to updated images, the aircraft is still stuck on the field after failing to take off once more. Further information regarding the incident and the reasons behind the plane’s inability to resume flight can be found in this article.
The Airbus A320 operated by Ural Airlines had to make an emergency landing almost three months ago. Though the plan was to take off from this wheat field, the plane stays there. Images uploaded by the user on platform X show the plane’s current location, which is encircled by a fence and has a small trailer reserved for security.
The Airbus A320 is left stranded in the field after an emergency landing.
The hydraulic system of the Ural Airlines aircraft was damaged, forcing the aircraft to land. The crew reported brake problems during the first landing attempt at Omsk airport, forcing the aircraft to divert to Novosibirsk. But because of a strong headwind, the landing gear was extended during the flight, which resulted in an increase in fuel consumption. Because of this, the Airbus crew decided to land the aircraft in the aforementioned wheat field close to Kamienka, about 124 miles short of the intended destination.
The Airbus A320’s handling airlines said in statements after the landing that the aircraft only sustained minor damage. They claimed that once multiple body attachment points are fixed, it ought to be able to take off again. The engines were also taken into consideration because they had taken in some dirt during the field landing. Blade components need to be replaced as a result of this incident.
