Plane makes emergency landing in Russia’s Siberia


A passenger aircraft en route from the Russian resort city of Sochi to Siberian city of Omsk has made an emergency landing in a field in the Novosibirsk Region due to the failure of the hydraulic system, Ural Airlines CEO Sergey Skuratov said on Tuesday.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Airbus A320 aircraft operated by Russian air carrier Ural Airlines made an emergency landing in a field. The airplane had 167 people, including six crew members and 23 children, on board. The regional health department said at least five people were injured in the incident, but none of the children on board the plane received injuries.

“When approaching Omsk, during landing, the ‘green’ hydraulic system on the plane failed. In general, the aircraft has three hydraulic systems: green, yellow and blue. Each is responsible for certain parameters of the operation of aircraft elements,” Skuratov told reporters.

The aircraft commander made an informed decision to land in an alternate airfield in Novosibirsk, and later realized that fuel would not be enough, the CEO added.

Passengers of the plane will be paid 100,000 rubles ($1,058), he added.
