That is the the crash discussed in the thread, that ChicagoFlyer refers to. Russian Navy TU-134 crashed during takeoff from Gvardeyskoe Airbase in Crimea, Ukraine. Carrying Chief Commander of Russian Navy Adm. Masorin and his staff on board. Cause - multiple birdstrikes in the left engine. The video commentator (one of the pilots) mentions the flock of gulls. No casualties, only a few burns and minor injuries.
