The liner carrying 234 people, including seven crew, was bound for the occupied Crimea's Simferopol, reports Meduza.

During the ascent, the jet collided with a flock of seagulls resulting in a failure of both engines, one of which caught fire.


As a result, the crew successfully landed the liner on a cornfield in the vicinity of the airport runway. Passengers were evacuated via inflatable ramps.
