- Thus the pilot can make something?

- the management system Should work! But at such small height she could and not be in time …

is there could be an error of the pilot?

What miracle all remained are live?

Having conferred with fans of planes, we have made three versions - what miracle all passengers have survived?

to Comment on each of them we have asked the dean of faculty of civil aircraft of the Minsk state aviation college Sergey SIZIKOVA.

1. The plane practically has not had time to come off a runway, therefore strong blow was not, the case remained is whole and samortiziroval a main blow.

the Comment: Certainly, it so. After all if it fell from height of 20 or 40 metres, blow would be stronger, from it the fuselage could collapse, people could be lost.

2. As the plane small and easy (weighs as two trolley buses), it has stopped rather quickly, it and has rescued people.

the Comment: Really, “ the Boeing “ it is powerful 350 tons “ propahal “ a runway it is much more. Consequences would be much more serious.

3. Passengers was a little - 18 persons (the plane on 50 is calculated), therefore all could get out quickly. (For comparison: in 1997 during accident of the plane And - 310 in Irkutsk 68 persons simply had not time to get out of the burning plane.)

the Comment: And it is correct. Besides, if people was more, accordingly would be more and luggage, that is, the plane lump would increase. And here already look version 2 …
