Will the incident at Zhukovsky airport affect the timing of the serial production of MS-21


The promising Russian airliner MS-21, the serial production of which is scheduled for the end of this year, has completed one of the most important stages of testing in an extremely ambiguous way.


At the Zhukovsky airport near Moscow, a procedure was tested for emergency termination of takeoff and stopping the aircraft, which is also called "rejected takeoff." Already at the last stage, during braking, the flight model of the MC-21-300 airliner fell off the runway and got stuck in the snow, having moved into the field at a distance of about fifty meters.

Along with the rejected landing, the rejected takeoff procedure is a critical step in the flight testing of an aircraft. It is not yet clear how the aforementioned incident will affect the timing of the serial production of the promising airliner, which, by the way, have already been repeatedly postponed. Everything will depend on whether the skid is caused technical malfunctions or an emergency situation was influenced by factors not directly related to the aircraft.

At the moment, experts are considering several versions of what happened. The first is purely technical, associated with a malfunction of the wheel disc brakes in the side landing gear struts. Experts believe that the plane skidded precisely because of the unevenness of the applied braking forces.

However, there is also a factor that does not depend on the liner itself. The thing is that, within the framework of the current tests, the failure of one of the MS-21 engines was simulated. In the conditions of braking with the use of reverse on one operating unit, a torque acts on the aircraft, which is extremely difficult for the pilot to cope with.

Finally, you should not write off the difficult weather conditions. On that day, not only the switched off engine played against the pilots, but also the poor visibility combined with the icy runway.

The press service of the Irkut corporation said that the aircraft crew was not injured during the incident. This event did not affect the operation of the airport. No visible damage to the airliner was found, and no failure of onboard systems was recorded. At the moment, UAC specialists are working to find out the causes of the incident.

Recall that in December 2020, the Russian promising narrow-body airliner MS-21-300 took off for the first time with fully domestic power plants PD-14. The flight lasted 1 hour 25 minutes.

It is assumed that in the future our aircraft will become the main competitor for Boeing and Airbus airliners on the world market, and will also replace obsolete Soviet aircraft in the country. According to the current plan, at the end of 2021, serial deliveries of the airliner to the first customers - Aeroflot, IrAero, Red Wings will begin.

    Yes, not as it will not affect, but there will be a reason to refer to this incident with a possible next delay for completely different reasons.

    Well, if you believe that the pilots who carried the nasty laughter ... we reacted about the change in the arrival airport, then it is possible that the MC was controlled by tax aces. In short, I say: there is a hybrid war, external and civil, the goal of which, as once in the 80s, is to totally discredit and isolate Russia. Therefore, there will be the most unexpected and sophisticated provocations and sabotage! Remember how many disasters and accidents happened in the USSR after the arrival of the humpback? After all, if you collect them in a heap - hell, it's scary to live! It was precisely this image of their country that they began to instill in us then. And now everything is the same.

      Avon, how puffy you are! Liberda is all up in arms! A head to think, no? Do you want to hypanut on empty? In black, in Russian it is written: "TESTS are coming." The aircraft is only being tested, and, mind you, by the manufacturer! In aviation about this period of the life of the aircraft they say "the machine is just learning to fly!" So, there is no need to splash with saliva and make incorrect sounds with smells! For reference, during the test of the SU-24, 100 (!!) vehicles were LOST, and as a result, the country received an aircraft that bypassed similar ones from a potential enemy for decades!

        And how much more will it take to destroy the MC-21 to realize that this plane will not fly anywhere?

          It will be the same as with superMUSORjet 100. They stole money and now nobody needs it. They plan to close the project, or from the principle they will invest even more dough "to spite everyone", and when everything calms down, they will close everything under pressure.

            So this project has probably been closed, it's time to start a new one, all the money has already been chosen for the old one!

              You're right, as always - it's time to close this project. German-Polish-Austro-Anglo-American project Ukraine. Because, apart from disgust, this country does not cause a misunderstanding.

            blah blah blah
            Superjet in its niche is a Leader, almost 300 aircraft have been made, and its direct competitors - Embraer and Bombardier have made 45 and 70 respectively. And where is the failure? Only in the head of the Libers. Your p ... hedgehog does not impress anyone, well, except for the same "anal" ogov. Themselves pleasant. This is also called - He ... rev.

        In what way did he go around, for example, the American F-111, with an eye on which he was doing?

    So the car is still damp. Everything will be corrected and brought to mind. With all new technology, there are more or less problems in the beginning.
    It will be more difficult later, when there is a series. The competition in the world in this market is enormous.
    Super Jet 100 is an example of this.

    It is necessary to push another 200-300 meters into the snow and let it stand until the earth dries out.

    Simulated crash landing + really bad weather conditions. As a result, a small incident. I don't think he will seriously affect anything.

    You don't know everything yet !!! Imagine how the first MC_21 influenced the timing, which collapsed during strength tests! laughing

      No MC-21 was destroyed during testing, no need to lie.
      A fragment of the aircraft and its center section were destroyed on a special ground stand. The task of strength testing was to find out when and under what loads the wing would collapse in order to determine the critical operating conditions of the aircraft. According to the results of the experiment, the wing structure is strengthened.
