ULAN UDE, May 17 (Itar-Tass) — A Boeing airliner of the VIM-Avia company made an emergency landing in Chita on Thursday while on an Omsk-Vladivostok flight.
"A Boeing-757 airliner has landed at Chita airport for a technical reason," said the airport's management board member, emphasizing that noone was hurt. According to preliminary information, the incident was prompted by a crack in the windshield.
