Emergency Landing of Ural Airlines Flight U61383: A Close Call Amidst Spare Parts Crisis

On the morning of September 12, Ural Airlines Flight U61383, which was traveling from Sochi to Omsk, was forced to make an emergency landing in a field in the Ubinsky district of the Novosibirsk region in Russia. The pilot had reported hydraulic issues to the Air Traffic Control. 


The Airbus A320 (registration RA-73805) attempted an approach to Omsk at 2,000 ft, then ascended to 18,000 ft, and circled the city before descending for an emergency landing. The aircraft, a 19-year-old Airbus A320-200 previously registered as VP-BMW, has been part of the airline's fleet since 2013. 


Reports from Russia’s Interfax news agency stated that there were 159 passengers on board, although TASS had earlier reported a count of 156 passengers. Initial reports suggest that there were no fatalities.

It's worth noting that due to sanctions imposed after the conflict in Ukraine, Russian airlines operating Airbus and Boeing aircraft are facing a shortage of spare parts. This has also affected Aeroflot, which is struggling with replacing worn-out brakes on its aircraft.
