Tu 154 emergency landing at Izhma (Komi)

Tu-154M plane was forced for blind emergency landing - because of electro and navi equipment malfunction, crew have no information about their location and fuel for only half an hour. Because of this they can't divert to Pechora, Ukhta, Vorkuta or Usinsk where there are more suitable runaway for this class. Our correspondet cites crew which named this landing "a miracle". Right after plane descended under low clouds near Izhmy, crew has noticed a bog in which it was impossible to land. After a turn the commander at first has seen an island on the river opposite to Izhmy, and only after that he has noticed the old runaway, used now as a helicopter platform.

- They said that was a miracle that they could land on this strip, with fuel remains for 10 minutes only. They walked this runaway, thanked her for rescue, - said БНКоми correspondent.

The impact was damped by the young trees which have grown since the airport was closed. Because of electric malfunction, the plane couldn't brake on the 1200 meters runaway and overrun about 150-200 meters out in the wood. None of 72 passengers of DRU516 flight hasn't received even a scratch.

The state commission will be created for the incident investigation and the plane has been sealed up by Office of Public Prosecutor till then. To rescue away the plane from Izhmy, it must be or cut in parts, or owners will decide to leave it where it is, crew members suppose.

On September 7 at 7:50 a.m. (Moscow time), a Tu-154 aircraft making the flight Polyarny - Moscow, made an emergency landing in the Komi republic. The landing was executed at the airport of village Izhma. The reason was the onboard equipment failure.

The Moscow-bound plane took off from Yakutia at 04:14 Moscow time. On board the ship there were 72 passengers, including three children and nine crew members: no one was hurt. The passengers have been housed in the building of the local district school and provided with meals.

Four hours after the start of the flight, the commander of the crew because of the onboard power system failure took an extraordinary decision to make an emergency landing in the Komi republic, at the Izhma airport designed for military aircraft. The local takeoff runway because of its small size is usually used only by helicopters, so the aircraft had to roll out 100 meters beyond it.

Airport Izhma is located 180 kilometers north of town Usinsk and is currently inoperative.

According to the source, the authorities of the Komi republic will organize during the day the transportation of passengers from Izhma to Ukhta by helicopter Mi-8. At the moment, they are trying to contact airport Mirny, where the Tu-154 aircraft belongs.

PS It's one of 6 AK Alrosa Tu154 planes

Actually I was perfectly able to understand what was being said, with a bit of thought.

Looks like the pax and crew were *very* lucky to walk away from that!

The good old metal.
This is when the 100 tons help to remain in one piece.

The TU-154, particularly the undercarriage, looks very strong!

A neat bit of flying it appears, and as said, the advantages of being in a brick-built *****.

I'll leave it to the 'popcorn eaters' to tear the crew apart.

That's the attitude. Big decision to make, and then 10 points for execution.

PS. Kulverstukas, I also understood your first post perfectly well.

....... and in the process of landing, created a road to get to the aircraft.

Well done to the crew.

Fuel state?

Apologies for layman's question - from where Komi ASSR is, one can be excused to ask how were they supposed to make it to Moscow, with 30 minutes of fuel remaining?

Great to see such a perfect landing with no navaids whatsoever on a miraculously find airstrip

Kulverstukas < I understood you quite well as well >. Thanks for posting this,
A toast of Vodka for the crew and even a bigger one for Mr Tupolev for having designed teh 154 like this. The outcome would have probably been different in a modern :" save all the weight you can " aircraft.
