MOSCOW, December 29 (Itar-Tass) — The airport of Vnukovo has reopened after the Tu-204 airliner crash landing, the investigation group, which works on the ground, told Itar-Tass on Saturday.
“At 6.30 Moscow time the airport reopened,” the investigation group said.
Meanwhile, at least 12 airliners were directed to Domodedovo and another plane to Nizhny Novgorod.
There was no such incident at the Vnukovo airport for three years. The latest incident occurred on September 5, 2009 when Red Wings’ Tu-204 made a forced landing. The airliner headed off to Turkey. One of the causes was the incorrect work of the system, which controls the parameters of the engine’s vibration. A total of 204 passengers were aboard the plane. No injured people were reported.
The Tu-204 plane made a forced landing at the airport of Vnukovo. It overran the runway at the Kiev highway. The plane’s the right wing fired at the area of 100 square metres. The fire was put out in 30 minutes.
Only eight crewmembers were aboard the airliner. According to latest data, as a result of the crash landing four of them died, including the airliner’s commander.
Criminal proceedings have been instituted. The investigation considers pilots’ error the cause of the crash landing.
Professional investigators and criminal lawyers, and representatives of the Interstate Aviation Committee work on the spot.
The rescue operation has ended at the moment.
