A Boeing 737-500 (reg. VQ-BPS) en route from Moscow had to make a crash landing after its tail hit the runway. Luckily, the 96 people on board were unharmed.

“During a hard landing at the Usinsk Airport due to landing gear problems, the plane hit the runway with its tail. According to preliminary data, there were no casualties from the incident,” a source with the emergency services stated.

Russia's civil aviation authority revealed that the unexpected landing was due to a problem with the chassis. Usinsk Airport's original schedule has not been disrupted, and everything seems to be running as usual.
