The pilot of a Krasnoyarsk Airlines Yakovlev Yak-40 successfully force-landed his aircraft in a Siberian field 28km (15nm) from his destination on 29 January. There was no injury to the four crew and 20 passengers on board as the aircraft landed in white-out conditions with 400m (1,300ft) visibility in snow. The aircraft was descending into Shushenskoye Airport, Siberia, at the end of a 900km flight from Podkammenaya Tunguska when the captain declared an unspecified emergency.
