Default Rough outlanding in high corn

One local report said the plane went across a drainage gully before coming

to a stop. Gear down that could well have made it a whole lot worse.
Will they have to disassemble? Send for a Size 10 Cobra? LoL

No wonder the corn looked so tall.

Nah, just a straightforward power-less landing. This was the real
"Miracle
in the cornfield":

It will need a big trailer for the retrieve


I've been on that airfield (for the MAKS airshow) and know the area
tolerably well. If they're lucky they might be able to just knock down a
few fences and tow it back.

The main problem would be if there was a stand of forest between.


There's another, bigger, problem: it was a wheels-up landing. The BBC
video clip is, for once, quite informative:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-49355236


I'm aware of that.

I'd submit that jacking it up and dropping the gear is a *considerably* smaller problem than clearing a couple of km of forest would be.

There would also be several drains or watercourses to temporarily bridge, the widest being an 8m irrigation channel, before the next person decides to point out something else I've apparently "missed".

If you build it (a cornfield) they will come (a landout).

Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

It helps if you put your cornfield two miles off the end of the runway at a busy airport.

Zhukovsky is a strange beast. It's fundamentally a military airfield. The bin-annual MAKS airshow is held there (I attended in 2015, soon after I started living in Russia). It's where you used to be able to buy a supersonic and/or edge of space MIG-29 flight

While I was in Russia they repurposed Zhukovsky as Moscow's 4th civilian International Airport. This was done very quickly, with very little infrastructure. They whacked up a terminal building in a couple of months and opened the place, pretty much. I thought the idea was to operate european discount airlines such as EasyJet from there. I didn't know they were doing domestic services.

It's very much the poor step-sister of the other three airports located N, W, and S of Moscow. The others have all got motorways and a dedicated railway line to them -- the Aeroexpress train takes 35 minutes (Vnukovo and Sheremetyevo) or 45 minutes (Domodedovo) from each airport to different railway stations each located about 3 to 4 km from the Kremlin on the Garden Ring road and metro Circle Line. You can drive/taxi in about the same amount of time (but from home, not from a railway station) if traffic is light, but if it's not .. I've once taken two hours to taxi from home to Vnukovo.

The way things work in Russia, if someone at the top wants Zhukovshy and its connections to the city developed quickly then everything could be utterly different in five years from now.

I wonder if the pilot also had to answer the question "what happened, did the wind quit?" LOL

Glad for a good outcome, wonder how long the retrieve will take!

So, if a jet engine is running when landing in a corn field, does it blow grits or popcorn out the tailpipe?

Depends on the type of corn.....;-)


As an aside, the landing was due to birds, so likely not much thrust to cook the corn......
