In Buryatia, made a hard landing passenger An-24, there are victims

The tragedy ended with the flight of the AN-24 aircraft of the Angara airline on the route Nizhneangarsk - Ulan-Ude.

According to the press secretary of the Government of Buryatia, Aleksey Fishev, one of the engines failed at AN-24 immediately after takeoff from the Nizhneangarsk airport of the Severobaikalsky district and the pilots decided to return to the airport.

During landing, for an unknown reason, the airliner rolled out of the runway to a distance of about 100 meters and crashed into technical construction, which led to a fire on board.

As a result, two pilots died, out of 43 passengers 19 were taken to the hospital in Nizhneangarsk with injuries of varying severity. Currently, rescuers and firefighters work at the scene of the tragedy.

One of the passengers of the flight took off landing from the cabin:

The circumstances of this tragedy are somewhat similar to the SSJ-100 crash at the Moscow Sheremetyevo airport, which occurred in May: problems during take-off and unsuccessful emergency landing.

Upon the incident, the East-Siberian SU CC in transport initiated a criminal case on violation of flight safety rules, which resulted in the death of people through negligence.

Accordingly, the Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC) and the territorial administration of the Federal Air Transport Agency will conduct their investigation into the causes of the tragedy.

    Very successful reliable aircraft.
    However years take their toll sad
    Yes, and the level of specialists ’hands each year is getting higher and higher and higher

    This plane has never been successful. It had a heavy load on the wing, which virtually eliminated the possibility of planning and to the extreme made it difficult to fly on one engine. The quality of spare parts from Ukraine is worse than anywhere, the marriage is more than 60% .... In addition, the aircraft is already very old ... All this suggests that work on the IL-114 should be accelerated ...

      Pischak answered for me.
      I repeat only - a reliable successful aircraft.

    Not very similar to the Superjet disaster, although they also returned with the maximum landing weight, but these pilots masterfully landed, at the beginning of the strip and without amateurish “goats” -WELLFUL, REAL FLYERS! EVERLASTING MEMORY!
    Reverse braking of the only working right propeller (this can also be seen by the shadow of the feathery left propeller) of the engine naturally demolished the plane from the runway (apparently not long enough in Nizhneangarsk, since the pilots had to brake so urgently, despite the obvious drift ??!).
    The An-24 was the very first aircraft on which, as a child, I flew and since then, in Soviet times, I flew a lot of them. Among aircraft technicians, he received the nickname "Fantomas", due to the general bluish-gray color, reminiscent of the protagonist of the French series of the late 60s and early 70s. winked
    I was always calm when the An-24 was my airliner, and if I had a choice, I chose it — an incredibly reliable and flying aircraft, and even on this landing with one engine running at almost full take-off weight, it’s clear that the runway is longer and if you didn’t have to emergency brake the screw, then everything would end happily!
    Eternal Memory Pilots! My sincere condolences to the families of the deceased, and Compassion to those who suffered in this plane crash.

      The length of the runway in Nizhneangarsk is 1653 m.
      Mileage An-24 (under normal conditions with a weight of 20 tons) 590 m.
      An-24 mileage (with non-flap release and a weight of 20 tons) 950 m.
      The run of the An-24 with the engines stopped along the dirt strip is about 800 m with a weight of 15,5 tons. On a hard-coated strip with a weight of 20 tons, about 1100 m.
      The strip should have been enough even without engine braking. Most likely, the start of the runway slipped, and the speed was probably too high. For every 10 km / h of speeding against the standard landing An-24, an additional 180 m of runway is needed. Therefore, most likely they began to slow down the engine. Probably too harsh for one engine, which is why the plane turned to the right.
      But these are only assumptions. Exactly everything can be determined only by a special commission.

        Thank you, dear Semsemch, for the clarification and reference data! The landing speed was higher, this is understandable, with one engine running, they flew and landed (in the passenger video, the landing speed is clearly visible).
        The beginning of the strip for such a speed didn’t slip very much, almost at the very beginning they landed, and went on landing. It was nice to see the confident work of experienced pilots.
        With the reverse propeller thrust, not everything worked out, so a turboprop engine is not a piston, not abruptly, but rather smoothly changes its speed, i.e. the feedback between the control signal and the propulsion reaction is a priori inert, with delay, very good coordination of the control actions is needed, nothing is known about the presence of a crosswind ... and it is a pity that such a serious obstacle appeared on the way.
        More than once or twice I observed training flights on the An-24 and An-26 with one engine intentionally stopped, these planes are quite adapted to such an “accident” and withstand it with flying colors, like properly trained crews!
        This crew did everything to save passengers, only the pilots did not save their lives!

      Indeed, it does not look like it at all: the failure of one engine in a two-propeller aircraft is a real emergency. No second calls, and an immediate return is fully justified (unlike SSJ). Pilots well done, sorry that no luck. And the landing is literate. If the touch zone has flown over, then not by much. If the reverse included then I will not judge --- they knew better. I never dared to do this, but with one engine I only had to sit on long strips, thank God. Well done, things could have been much worse. Everlasting memory!
