KRASNOYARSK, December 17. /ITAR-TASS/. A Boeing-737-800 owned by the Taimyr airlines company has cut short its flight to Dubai and landed at home airport in Krasnoyarsk on Tuesday after the aircraft’s windshield cracked. No one was hurt, a source from the Krasnoyarsk department of the Federal service for supervision of air transport told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
A reserve plane, which is to airlift the passengers to Dubai is on standby, ready to take off at any time, the press service of the Taimyr airline company said on Tuesday.
Earlier on Tuesday the plane took off from Yemelyanono airport in Krasnoyarsk, heading for Dubai, but it had to return to the home airport after a crack had appeared in its windshield on the side of the chief pilot's first mate's seat.
For several hours the plane had been using up its fuel before making an emergency landing at Krasnoyarsk airport. There were 127 passengers, seven crewmen and more than 1,100 tons of cargoes aboard.
It was a second emergency landing in December. In a previous incident on December 12 another Boeing 737-800, which was to fly from Krasnoyarsk to Norilsk, had to return to Krasnoyarsk because of a threat of depressurization.
