MOSCOW/KRASNOYARSK, March 4. /TASS/. Russia’s MiG-31 fighter jet made an emergency landing in the Krasnoyarsk region on Friday due to a failure sensor malfunction, the Russian Defense Ministry press service reported. The fighter will continue its flight after a technical checkup.
A source in the Krasnoyarsk region’s security agencies said earlier on Friday that a MiG-31 fighter made an emergency landing in Kansk. Sources in the military prosecutor’s office of the Krasnoyarsk garrison said they had no right to disclose the details of the incident.
"The decision to make an emergency landing was made due to the triggering of a failure sensor in a plane unit. The fighter landed satisfactorily. The plane will continue its flight on the planned route after a technical checkup," the Defense Ministry said.
According to the ministry, the plane landed at the Kansk airfield at around 07:00, Moscow time. The fighter was on the way to a regular overhaul.
Sources in the region’s emergency services told TASS that the MiG-31 fighter that has made an emergency landing is based in the Russian Far East. The plane’s technical malfunction will be repaired shortly.
"The fighter’s home base is located in the Far East. It was performing a scheduled flight today to an aircraft repair plant in Nizhny Novgorod. The malfunction that was the reason for the MiG-31 fighter’s emergency landing at Kansk in the Krasnoyarsk region will be soon repaired. It’s a minor trouble," the source said.
