A Russian Tu-154 passenger jetliner with 116 passengers on board made an emergency landing Saturday following a technical snag in its engines.
The safe landing was made in the Urals city of Yekaterinburg, a spokesman of the Russian air transport regulator Rosaviatsiya said.
The plane departed Yekaterinburg at 4.15 p.m. local time Saturday for the southern city of Mineralnye Vody. But it returned to Yekaterinburg due to technical problems in one of its engines, an airport spokesman in Yekaterinburg said.
“The captain reported to air traffic controllers that there were problems with the engine and decided to return to the airport of departure,” the Rosaviatsiya spokesman said. He said the Uralskie Airlines plane lost power in one of its three engines and the pilot had to burn off fuel near Yekaterinburg before making an emergency landing.
“The aircraft landed at 4.31 p.m. Moscow time and no one was injured during the landing,” he said.
