A local lawyer who dreamed of flying. The story of Russian pilot Damir Yusupov, who saved 233 lives by landing his plane in a cornfield

On the morning of August 15, an Airbus A321 plane owned by Ural Airlines took off for Simferopol but never arrived. Shortly after leaving the Zhukovsky airport outside Moscow, the plane made an emergency landing with 233 people on board. A flock of seagulls had collided with the jet during takeoff, with birds falling into both engines. One of the engines lost power, and the other caught fire.
