Remarkable that there was no post crash fire! Seems like a good outcome without knowing all the facts. Dual engine flame out?

Due to the price increase in ammunition, do not expect a warning shot.

The similarities to the Hudson landing of US Airways Flight 1549 are uncanny: Both A32x airbus models, bird strikes just after take-off, both engines affected, insufficient power to make it back to the airport, zero fatalities... It appears the engines of the Ural Airlines flight were still producing some power, but it is not entirely clear.
