On 7 Apr 2009 at around 21:48 Moscow time a Boeing 757 of R3 (Airline Yakutia) made a successful landing at VKO after circling Moscow area for 5 hours. On board were 175 pax and 9 flight crew.

According to a news article, the Captain, shortly after take off, reported a technical fault, what some sources indicate was cockpit decompression(!).

Gee, the flight time of the scheduled flight was ought to be 6 hours and they circled around originating airport for 5 hours. Must have been stressful and tiring for everyone, but good thing everyone is safe and the plane taxied off the runway without further assistance.

The article in Russian: http://lenta.ru/news/2009/04/07/vnukovo2/

So I take it no fuel dump facility on a Boeing 757?

P.S. this comes just as R3 are about to receive fourth 757 to their fleet.

No, there is no fuel dump on a 757. Or a 737, or an A320, or an MD-80...

BUT- that said, there is no need for them to circle for FIVE HOURS out of a six hour flight to burn fuel.
They must have circled for some other reason...

Traffic management perhaps? Could ATC've given instructions to wait in holding area until normal daily traffic lands and departs? Then again given technical nature of the fault - one would think they'd want the bird landed asap... of course, at this stage, it's not even certain 100% it was indeed a tech problem.
