Russia: Dissatisfied With Boeing 737’s Route To Moscow – Safe Landing
While on route to the Russian capital, a domestic flight’s aircraft flashed the “state of emergency” indicator.
According to Reuters, a Russian Boeing 737 aircraft made the emergency declaration today while en route from the Arctic port of Murmansk to Moscow.
The information was provided by a source from the civil aviation authority, according to the Russian news outlet Tass.
The alert was issued by the aircraft when it passed over the Vologda region while flying at a height of more than 10,000 metres (33,000 feet).
Further information like the name of the airline that owned the aircraft was omitted by Tass.
North of Moscow, at around 1,500 kilometres, sits Murmansk. Flights connecting these two locations are handled by S7, the second-biggest carrier in Russia and its largest private airline.
According to a source from the civil aviation authority, the Russian Boeing 737 aircraft that had raised the alert while conducting a domestic flight made a safe landing at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport.
