The Tu-214 of the Rossiya special flight squad was forced to make an emergency landing in Chita. According to the crew, on takeoff, a bird got into the left engine – this is a dangerous emergency situation. Passengers sitting in the second part of the cabin saw a flash and fire in the engine.

It was obvious to the passengers that the plane could not gain altitude, it was wedged to one side. The pilots began to land, trying to stay as far away from the residential sector as possible.
