2002-01-17, Serge Pod: Airliner Makes Emergency Landing in Omsk, Nobody Hurt A Tu-204 passenger aircraft belonging to the Russian airline Sibir en route from Frankfurt to Novosibirsk made an emergency landing in Omsk. A source with the Omsk airport has told Interfax that Novosibirk's Tolmachyovo airport denied the landing of flight 852 arriving from Germany and redirected the plane to Omsk. Approaching a landing strip at the Omsk airport, the pilots realized that the plane might miss the strip due to a heavy crosswind. However, as the airliner was running out of fuel, the crew did not risk making another approach and landed the plane, which then ran some 400 meters off the strip. /Interfax/ AVIA.RU - Информационное агентство "Российская авиация и космонавтика"

(AP) - A sightseeing plane crashed in a remote mountain creek valley, and rescuers reached the two passengers Thursday after a search helicopter crash-landed. No one was killed. After the plane crash Wednesday, the pilot hiked six hours to find a place where his cell phone would work so he could call for help. The plane's passengers - one wearing shorts - were found early Thursday with broken bones. None of the eight aboard the helicopter from Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque was injured.

2002-01-10, Serge Pod: Thursday January 10 7:45 AM ET Two Turkish Warplanes Crash, Pilots Safe ANKARA (Reuters) - Two Turkish military F4 jets crashed in southeastern Turkey on Thursday but the pilots escaped uninjured, an official said. State-run Anatolian news agency had initially reported the jets were F16s but it later said they were F4s and that was confirmed by a local government official in the city of Malatya. ``Four pilots were rescued safely,'' the official told Reuters. ``The planes were flying over Malatya. Helicopters have arrived at the scene to deal with the wreckage.'' The official said the planes were on a training flight but there was no information on why they went down. Nobody was immediately available at Turkey's General Staff to give further details. Last year Turkey lost several military planes in accidents including one in May, when a transport plane crashed killing all 34 people on board. http://dailynews.yahoo.com/h/nm/ 20020110/wl/turkey_crash_dc_1.ht ml

(Reuters) - A New Jersey Air National Guard F-16 fighter jet crashed near a training range in southern New Jersey on Thursday and the pilot ejected safely, suffering minor injuries, military officials said.

2002-01-10, Serge Pod: THURSDAY JANUARY 10 2002 Russia signs contract to build two destroyers for Chinese Navy FROM MICHAEL BINYON IN MOSCOW RUSSIA yesterday announced that it had signed an arms contract to build two new destroyers for the Chinese Navy at a cost of $1.4billion. The ships will be delivered to the Chinese by 2006 and will be equipped with up-to-date missiles, bombs, torpedo, radar and anti-submarine systems as well as new anti-ship supersonic missiles. The vessels, able to reach 34 knots, will add formidable power to the Chinese Navy. The contract follows a $650million weapons sale to India and underlines the crucial importance to the Russian economy of its arms sales, one of its main sources of revenue after oil exports. India is one of Russia’s primary arms markets and the present tension with Pakistan is deeply worrying to Moscow. India is putting pressure on Moscow to supply vast quantities of emergency spares, but the Russian factories are unable to meet demand. Should war break out and Moscow be unable to…

2002-01-09, Serge Pod: Will Russia Have a People`s Helicopter? In the last 20 years, light helicopters have been able in a literal sense to turn over our notions about the capabilities of rotary-winged aircraft... It has turned out that even an ultralight helicopter is a serious helper in many undertakings, to the point of the most exotic type of archaeology or fishing. In extreme situations, small nimble aircraft really exceed as the only possible means of rescue. They are multipurpose, maneuverable, mobile, smaller sized, and the air flow created by the main rotor is several times smaller than that had by modern rescue helicopters which fully can drown those it is supposed to save. The only failure of ultralight helicopters is the low weight of its useful load. However, prospective technologies have allowed a significant lowering of the weight of the equipment and outfitting, therefore, the modern air rescuers are in no way /in equipage/ outclassed by medium and even heavy helicopters, while really exceeding them in acquisition…

2002-01-09, Serge Pod: First An-225 Flight The world`s largest aircraft, the An-225, made its first commercial flight Wednesday when it flew from Stuttgart, Germany to Oman carrying meals for U.S. military personnel, Ukraine`s Antonov Airlines said last week.

2002-01-09, Serge Pod: Joint US - Russia Aircraft Projects Assured by Market Demand As the General Director of ZAO Sukhoy Civil Airplanes, Andrey Ilyin, emphasized, as of today, preliminarily, in accordance with a confidently pessimistic variant of the forecast for the demand for a new family of regional passenger airplanes, being built by the Russian ZAO Sukhoi Civil Airplanes, OAO Ilyushin Aircraft Company and the Boeing firm /USA/, for the period to 2020 is estimated at 700 aircraft of all modifications taking into account the activity in the marketplace of basic competitors.

2002-01-09, Serge Pod: An-38 with TVD-20 Engines Lifted into Air in December On 11 December 2001, there was the first lift-off of the An-38 airplane with Russian TVD-20 engines. The prior modification of the aircraft with American engines was extremely expensive: its cost exceeded 4 million dollars. It is natural that internal regional trips on such a type cannot assure a return of funds attracted for the purchase of the aircraft. This also was the reason of the fact that the first two airplanes being used at the Vostok airline where rebased to Malaysia. The TVD-20 proved itself well on An-3 airplanes. Outfitted with the Russian engines, the cost of the An-38 will decline by almost 1 million dollars.
