  • AN 124 crash

    Frequent visitor here, lost an engine and slid off the runway while landing in Novosibirsk. Doubt it can be repaired.

    It's totaled. The plane can be replaced, the people on board can not. Fortunately it doesn't appear as though any of the crew would have been seriously injured.

          No instruments, no communication, and only 1000' of altitude to work with heck yeah great job by the captain and crew.

            Volga-Dnepr has today grounded all 8 operational AN-124s after the incident in Novosibirsk, currently rescheduling customer shipments. Others may follow suit.

              It is an engine thing. That compressor section went high order.

                Absolutely. Considering everything stacked against them they did a fantastic job of taking a very heavy, underpowered (fully fueled, 28 tons of cargo, one engine out) aircraft right back to where they had just taken off from.

                    An exceptional bit of flying to say the least. Losing an engine right after takeoff along with assymetrical slats and flaps availability made it a potentially deadly situation, and having 84 tons of cargo in the back made it doubly so. Easily the most impressive display of airmanship in recent memory.
