Ural Airlines Flight U61383 made an emergency landing in Novosibirsk region, Russia, the morning of Sept. 12.
The Ural Airlines (U6) Flight #U61383 was en route from Sochi to Omsk. The pilot reported hydraulic problems to ATC.
The Captain decided to divert to an airport with longer runways but then realized they could not make it to Novosibirsk and decided to land in an open field near Novosibirsk, Siberia, with 167 people aboard.
Russia’s Ural Airlines plans to return to operation its Airbus A320 (reg. RA-73805).
Signs that Russian carrier Ural Airlines is preparing the A320 aircraft for take-off, a Ground power unit (GPU) can be seen connected here, which means a power up attempt and getting ready to leave the field.
The aircraft has been cleaned, all slides stowed, the doors closed, the engines have been covered, the landing gear was dug out of the ditches.
It is not clear if the airline intends for the plane to take off from the field itself, or a nearby road. However, there don’t seem to be any wide roads nearby.
