Choosing the right field may have been an in-bread decision by the pilots or may have been gluten for pun-ishment from the community if they got it wrong.

Some of those pictures and videos are very grainy, you can barley make out the engines.

It is almost an eighties concert, when a flock of seagulls were followed by hall and oats.

Even more disappointing is that there are five moderators participating in this thread, three of which are simply perpetuating this crap. Is making stupid jokes really the only input you can give on a rather serious and rare aviation incident from which there surely are important lessons to be learned?

Perhaps the moderators don't know the rules they are supposed to enforce in this section?
Keep to the topic – any posts that stray from the intended topic will be deleted. Discussions that reach the end of their life will be locked at the discretion of the moderators.

I'm really very disappointed.

Please lighten up guys, it’s been pretty serious around here for a while, with the very distressing Tanzanian crash, so just the guys letting off a bit of steam.

To get to the topic, I think they are very lucky they had such an enormous field available to them, have you seen the size of that area?

The corn field was a perfect choice absorbed the momentum and probably acted like a cushion and let the aircraft slide rather than digging in.
High density maize are planted between 80 000 to 90 000 plants per hectar quite a lot of maize

Russias highest medal awarded to the pilot by Putin.

There’s no doubt they handled the situation very well, and a great outcome for everyone on board, but hero??? Awarded Russia’s highest medal??

Seriously, when you lose both engines in a jet airliner due to severe damage just after take-off, the options available to you are rather limited - stick the nose down, give a brace PA and crash ahead - you won’t even have time to start the APU, although it would probably commence autostarting anyway. I think in the case of the Hudson landing it was a much more complex situation because they had more time and options, and Sully chose a very difficult one.

What else did they expect them to do - throw their arms up in the air and say, we give up, this is too hard? - it was their butts on the line as much as everyone else’s after all.

Hero - a term woefully abused by the tabloid press - diminishes the recognition the real heroes deserve.
If nothing else works, a total pig-headed unwillingness to look facts in the face will see us through.

To answer an earlier question, from the web it says the gear was up. Is this standard practice for a forced landing off airfield for something this big?

Wow long lessons on Soviet era medals and such, not sure if thiat is on topic, but thanks anyway.

;)
