Luck of fuel caused by unexpected head wind 120 knots on divertion.

Question

Hi Ruslan, do you have a confirmation for this news? You wrote that they ran out of fuel at 2000 m i.e. ~6000 ft and then glided 30 Nm to the runway. That seems a bit far to glide with no engine power.

Thumbs up

Hmmmm, glide ratio of 1:28 does seem a bit to good to be true.

Don't let our political friends from all the green parties and the noise lobby find out. Next thing they will be demanding that in stead of making our descend and approaches with idle power only, that we make glide approaches all the time.

Ah sorry, misread 30 miles/kilometers, the correct figure is about 30 km abt 18 miles, and accident was taken place, no doubt. But in other hands Russian media remain silence, it is the second accident Syberia involved, first one was Tupolev 154 shoot down over Black Sea not far ago.
