Unexpected Return: UTAir Flight Carrying Radioactive Material Lands Back in Moscow

A UTAir flight, with 109 passengers on board, was forced to make an unexpected return to Moscow shortly after take-off. The reason for the return was a technical issue with the wing flaps of the Boeing-737-500 aircraft.


The pilots made a safe landing at Vnukovo Airport in Moscow, putting the passengers' safety first and foremost. However, what the passengers were not aware of was that the flight was also carrying a hazardous cargo of 19kg of radioactive material.

Despite the unplanned descent, the radioactive material remained undamaged and was being transported to Khanty-Mansiysk, a city in western Siberia. The Kremlin had granted special permission for the transportation of this material due to its potential dangers.
