eyewitness accounts

A TASS source said that the plane crashed in a field in the immediate vicinity of private residential buildings, in the meadows of the floodplain of the Pletenka River near Mikhailovsky Highway.

A local summer resident, who witnessed the crash of the aircraft, told RIA Novosti that when Il-76 crashed, he hit a power line, after which electricity was cut off in his village.

“The hum went unnatural. I tell my wife: “Probably the plane crashed.” I go out – everything is already blazing here. It was at the beginning of the fourth,” he said.

The absence of electricity was confirmed by TASS in the administration of Ryazan, specifying that several streets of the city were de-energized.

“There was a blackout on two streets – Bibliotechnaya and Sitnikovskaya. Residential buildings were left without electricity,” the source said.

Another eyewitness, a former pilot, told Izvestia that the Il-76 pilots tried to steer the aircraft away from residential buildings.

“The landing approach is much further. Here he just fell. It fell to pieces, ”the man added.

According to open data, the Il-76 is a Soviet medium turbojet transport aircraft of military and civil aviation, one of the main transport aircraft of the USSR Air Force. At various times, the Il-76 was operated by the air force and dozens of transport airlines from more than 40 countries, as well as United Nations. But the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation became the largest operator of aircraft of this type. Il-76 is the main aircraft of the military transport aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces.

The moment of the fall of the Il-76 military transport aircraft and the first minutes after the disaster in Ryazan were caught on video.

In the above video, it can be seen that the ignition of the aircraft engine began in the air.

The fire at the crash site of the Il-76 transport aircraft near Ryazan has been extinguished. This is reported by TASS with reference to a source in emergency services.

The fire has been extinguished,” the spokesman said.

According to reports, the plane crashed in a field near private residential buildings in the area of ​​​​Mikhailovsky highway, in the meadows of the floodplain of the Pletenka River.

The wreckage of the fallen Il-76 military aircraft in Ryazan destroyed a small bridge across the Pletenka River, a 62INFO correspondent reports from the scene.

The wreckage of the plane was scattered over a huge area. Emergency services arrived at the scene overnight. Almost the entire Moscow department of the police department is involved in the cordon, aviation technical services are working.

A small bridge over the Pletenka River was destroyed by debris, it is located within the cordon radius. It has already been restored.

The correspondent noted that almost the entire plane burned down. The tail section survived the best.

A professional pilot commented on the 62INFO incident with a military aircraft that crashed near Mikhailovsky Highway on Friday, June 24th.

“IL-76 is a military transport aircraft. It has been in operation somewhere since the late 70s and is considered very reliable. Load capacity – about 40 tons. About the same amount of fuel. It is very difficult to land such a colossus on the ground, as the crew of this IL-76 did, ”said the pilot.

The interlocutor of 62INFO added that, most likely, at the time of landing, something caught fire or got out of control.

“But the guys are definitely great, the guys acted very coolly. They probably have three engines left. If so, then they had to make this decision while flying over residential areas. And they accepted it, they consciously landed on the ground,” the source stressed.

He also noted that the crew did not have the opportunity to eject, as in some fighters.

“Landing on three engines, on unprepared ground, is a very difficult and responsible decision, and judging by the way they flew, they accepted it and did everything to get away from residential development,” the pilot concluded.

Work on the restoration of power lines, where the Il-76 plane crashed in Ryazan, will be completed before 17:00.

This was reported to TASS in the city administration.

Earlier it was reported that the plane damaged power lines, several streets of Ryazan were left without electricity.
