Yakutia Boeing 737-800 makes emergency landing in Krasnodar

KRASNODAR, February 6  —— The Yakutia airline's Boeing-737-800, which was on a flight from Krasnodar to Novy Urengoi, made an emergency landing at Krasnodar airport on Monday.

The airliner was on Flight 937 from Krasnodar to Novy Urengoi when the indicator signalled the gear was not retracted. The incident occurred at 11:00 Moscow time in the Rostov zone.

The crew decided to return to Krasnodar and land there. Before landing, the Boeing flew around the airport area burning off fuel. The plane landed safely at 11:50. Aboard the plane there were 160 passengers, 2.5 tonnes of cargoes and 2.5 tonnes of luggage. Nobody was hurt.

A technical commission will examine the liner. The passengers will take other flights to the destination.
