A military plane miraculously avoided a collision with high-rise buildings

The pilot of the fallen Il-76 miraculously avoided a collision with residential buildings.

The pilot of the Russian military transport aircraft Il-76, despite the urgency of the situation, made every effort to avoid a collision with residential buildings. This is evidenced by video footage on which you can see that the plane, in conditions of almost complete absence of engine thrust, is trying to maneuver over the city in order to avoid collision with multi-storey residential buildings. In fact, thanks to the action of the crew, a very serious tragedy was avoided.

On the presented video frames, you can see how the pilot of the Russian Il-76 maneuvers, trying not only to reach the area where the plane could make an emergency landing, but also to avoid collision with multi-storey buildings. Having taken the plane out of the residential area, the crew, in all likelihood, tried to land the military aircraft on the territory of the park area, but, obviously, due to the lack of traction, they could not do this.

As a result of an emergency landing, four of the ten crew members on board were killed, five more people are in the hospital with injuries of various kinds of severity, including three people are in serious condition.

According to preliminary data, the cause of the ignition of the engine of the Il-76 aircraft was the ingress of a bird into it.
