Airbus A320 field landing

Airbus A320 field landing

RE: Airbus A320 field landing

Well must have been pretty serious if he put it on the deck.

Flaps are down ok so the electric system worked but you would have thought there were other airfields to land on reasonably close by.

Thanks @LittleInch
The flight details seem strange - Sochi to Omsk, but they put the aircraft down just past Novosibirsk, c. 600km further east. (If I have the detail correct)
Strange.

RE: Airbus A320 field landing

They actually name the town and it's on the way avoiding kazachston

RE: Airbus A320 field landing

any landing you can walk away from was a good landing ...

RE: Airbus A320 field landing

Apparently the crew elected to continue, instead of diverting much earlier in the flight.

It appears that the Green hydraulic system failed, allowing gear-doors to remain open, decreasing speed into a head-wind and increasing 'fuel burn'. It appears that the real nail-in-the-coffin was potential for running-out of fuel over unknown territory. In this case landing 'under control/power' appears to have been considered the safest option by the crew.

NOTE1. Landing in this 'cleared farm field', with [what appears-to-be] minimal damage, MIGHT allow the jet to 'fly-out' and be returned to service.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TACA_Flight_110
TACA Flight 110 was a scheduled international airline flight operated by TACA International Airlines, traveling from San Salvador to New Orleans, with a stopover in Belize City. On May 24, 1988, the flight encountered severe thunderstorm activity on its final approach to New Orleans International Airport. As a result, the brand new Boeing 737-300 suffered flameout in both engines while descending through a severe thunderstorm, but the pilots made a successful emergency landing on a grass levee adjacent to NASA's Michoud Assembly Facility, with no one aboard sustaining more than a few minor injuries, and with only minor hail damage to the intact aircraft. Following an on-site engine replacement, the jetliner took off from Saturn Boulevard, a road which had previously been an aircraft runway at Michoud. The aircraft was subsequently repaired and returned to service until it finally retired in 2016.[1]

Well they need to find a nice straight road they can use as a runway....

RE: Airbus A320 field landing

LI... or consider making a runway with a layers of gravel and PSP...

RE: Airbus A320 field landing

I don't know if its Urban Legend, but the story says that there are sections of the US Interstate Highway System that are layed out to handle aircraft landing.

Wil,
"TACA Flight 110 "

Don't know if you enjoy YouTube or not, but there's an aviation channel that specializes in accident recreation and analysis known as "Mentour Pilot" [sic]. They did a detailed recreation of TACA Flight 110 which included a lot of tense calls from crew to the ground looking for a field to land on. In the notes of the video, there's an interview with the pilot of saved the bird that is fun to watch, too, also on YT.

AlexEss,
Sorry to divert your thread.
Is there an indication that parts shortages were a factor in this accident? It's commonly said that with sanctions against Russia preventing aircraft operators from obtaining parts, many planes are being pushed beyond their approved schedules for part replacement.

(OP)
Thanks for the comments all, some good info links posted ( SWC )
No problem with the divert, Sparweb, again, an interesting link.
