• Lucky Tu-154 or Izhemsky miracle
September 7, 2010 in the Russian skies number of guardian angels has exceeded all records. The gods of all faiths, religions, and nationalities gathered on the village Izhma. Miracle. Happiness. Coincidence. Happy board room. Happy carriage 72 and passenger.
In the history of this state of emergency aviation, and not this emergency, and certainly not a disaster will go down in history as "Izhemsky miracle." The miracle that occurred with the same Tupolev Tu-154. The investigation was completed, the aircraft flies intensively again, the culprits awarded.
For me, this event - a holiday, or rather there were two day landing and takeoff day.
In his photo essay (Photo by various authors), I just want to emphasize the high level of professionalism and a great love for their work employees of the airline "Alrosa". Other airlines have dropped his board in the forest and would have forgotten about it. But this way employees and / to "Alrosa" is not satisfied, have been spent a lot of money for the restoration, the exact amount in rubles will not say, but I will say only one thing - it's more than two tens of millions of rubles.
For the second diamond mining company in the world total, in principle, is small. But here was a matter of principle - to pull out of the "iron lucky" from the taiga, it is managed brilliantly. Well done.
At an altitude of 10,000 meters there was an extraordinary situation ... Who is interested knows that as a yes, we will not go into the technical details, for it is not competent, and are not in this post. In general, the plane landed on an abandoned strip Izhma airport.
The following day, around the plane trees were cut down, put the shed.
The plane really lucky draw attention to this photograph, on the left the road going to the runway, there is a high ravine and rolled the plane a few meters ... No, stop - and well done. On the right side is even worse situation, but it did not take off. What for?

Photos culprit accident
As you can see from the photos, the plane is almost not damaged, dents, scratches, plucked the antenna does not count. The Pulkovo, Novosibirsk and other cities, a huge number of carcasses with the resource - buy, fly. 3 months ago, before the accident, "Aeroflot" has destroyed all of its Tupolev and brought scrap on wagons in an unknown direction, "Siberia" still does not know what to do with their Tushkanov.
It made an unprecedented decision - to restore, renovate and re-let the line of air transportation. Almost six months was time-consuming work. Tu-154 installed in the strip end, started a lot of work.
By mid-March this year it was ready to send aircraft in the long-awaited flight. On Internet forums envious and provocateurs could not calm down, many do not believe in the success.
