Unusual Landing: Russian Plane Mistakenly Touches Down on Frozen River

In an unusual event, a Russian passenger plane carrying 34 people, including 30 passengers and four crew members, landed on a frozen river in Russia's Far East. The incident, which occurred due to an apparent mistake by the pilot, resulted in no injuries.


The Incident

The aircraft involved in the incident was a Soviet-era Antonov-24, operated by Polar Airlines. On the morning of Thursday, the plane came to a halt on the frozen River Kolyma, not far from land. The passengers and crew were safely evacuated on foot from the aircraft in Siberia's coldest region of Yakutia.


The Cause

Transport prosecutors attributed the unusual landing to pilot error. The pilot mistakenly identified the frozen river as a runway, leading to the unexpected landing. Despite the error, the plane landed safely, and no one was hurt in the incident.

The Aftermath

Following the incident, the aircraft was left stranded on the frozen river. The authorities are likely to conduct a thorough investigation into the circumstances that led to the mistaken landing. This incident underscores the importance of stringent safety measures and accurate navigation in aviation.
