Pilots who landed in Moscow suburbs became Heroes of Russia

The endurance, heroism and high professionalism of the crew commander, Damir Yusupov, and the co-pilot, George Murzin, were appreciated by the President of Russia.

Opening the meeting with the permanent members of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin said that by his decision the pilots who made the emergency landing of the airliner were awarded the title Heroes of the Russian Federation, and the remaining crew members were awarded the Order of Courage.

The corresponding order signed by the head of state has already been published on the Kremlin website.

The text of the decree notes that the ranks of the Heroes of Russia were awarded to pilots for courage and heroism shown in the performance of official duties in extreme conditions, and orders of Courage are awarded to the rest of the crew "for courage and selflessness shown in the performance of official duties in extreme conditions."

Without a doubt, the emergency landing of the Airbus A321 airliner, made by Damir Yusupov and Georgy Murzin, as well as the coordinated actions of the rest of the crew, are an example of heroism, thanks to which the lives of more than two hundred people on board were saved.

Recall that the passenger liner was supposed to make the flight Moscow-Simferopol, but was forced to make an emergency landing due to the failure of one of the engines that occurred as a result of a bird entering it.

    Personally, I still really liked the modesty of PIC Damir Yusupov. Each aircraft in Aeroflot has its own name, and I hope that Ural Airlines will also celebrate a Hero by calling it an airplane.

    The daughter still will not stop flying.

    - the mother of the flight attendant, who saved 43 An-24 passengers who crashed in Buryatia,
    Elena Laputskaya did not leave the AN-24 cabin until she helped all passengers to get out.

    The fact that none of the passengers of the An-24 plane died, which in the morning, June 27, made a hard landing at the airport of the Buryat village of Nizhneangarsk, and crashed into the sewage treatment plant, a huge merit of 40-year-old flight attendant, Elena Laputskaya, caught fire. Elena was the only flight attendant on board, and immediately after a collision with the building, even before the plane caught fire, she managed to quickly open the emergency doors and helped people get out of the cabin. Thanks to this, none of the 43 passengers died.
