On the morning of September 12, a Ural Airlines Airbus A320 made an emergency landing in a wheat field in the Novosibirsk region. There were 161 passengers and six crew members on board, and no one died as a result of the incident. As the airline said, the plane had problems with hydraulics, so the crew commander decided to land in Novosibirsk, but due to the risk of fuel shortage, the decision was made to land the aircraft in a field.
