Published footage of the fall of the Russian Il-76 near Ryazan

Video footage of the fall of a heavy military transport aircraft Il-76, which crashed during a training flight near Ryazan, got into social networks. During the incident, four people died, five were injured and were taken to the hospital. The condition of one of those on board is regarded as extremely serious.

One of the videos shows a hard landing of an aircraft, the other shows the remains of the aircraft and the work of rescue services.

According to sources, the Il-76 flew on the Belgorod-Orenburg route and, after refueling, took off on June 24 at 3:05 from the airfield in Diaghilev (on the western outskirts of Ryazan), without cargo on board. Less than a minute later, the airfield operator saw a flash in the area of ​​​​the fourth engine of the aircraft and tried to contact the Il-76 crew, but there was no answer. At about 4 o'clock the transporter fell in the area of ​​​​Mikhailovsky highway.

The Acting Governor of the Ryazan Region, Pavel Malkov, noted in his Telegram channel that thanks to the prompt and well-coordinated work of the rescue service, the survivors of the disaster were quickly rescued.

The Russian Defense Ministry reported that the crash of the transport aircraft was due to an engine malfunction. The crew decided to make an emergency landing on the ground. On contact with the ground there was a "partial destruction" of the aircraft.

    Judging by the open flame in the area of ​​​​the engine, the compressor blade was destroyed or detached. In this case, the detached piece pierces its engine, all wing mechanisms, the neighboring engine, the fuselage - and flies further. The kinetic energy of this fragment is comparable to the energy of an armor-piercing projectile and even higher.

    It fell in a protected natural area near the confluence of two rivers within the city. It is forbidden to build large facilities there, but there are holiday villages.

    And the pilots were great, they managed to orient themselves and land on the field, but it could have been much worse, there are multi-storey buildings further on. I live in Ryazan.
