Sure does, hummm, well if true it's another Christmas miracle crash, just like another thread going now here on A.net, except that one was 20 years ago, but all survivied. Xmas Miracle In Stockholm, 20 Years Ago

From mail.ru website with my rough translation:

"At Osh airport in K-stan, a passenger TU134 flying from Bishkek made an emergency landing. Seven people were hospitalised. Children are among the injured.

According to preliminary information, the emergency landing was due to bad weather, especially fog. It is not excluded that part of the runway was covered in ice. A special government inquiry team will clarify the various senarios.

During the landing, the TU134 went beyond the runway and fell on its' side, losing a wing. After that, witnesses heard an explosion.

Local media report that the plane burst into flames after a failed landing"

I guess 'emergency landing' means crash landing, perhaps due to poor weather?

Incidentally the caption in the opening post specifically says it's not a photo of the crashed Tu-134.

Even better: why do they show a photoshopped picture of a Kalita 747-200F that overan the runway in BRU back in 2008?

The Aviation Herald has a good write-up on it and a couple of pictures:

http://www.avherald.com/h?article=4486342a&opt=0

It sounds like the weather may have been below minimums when they landed according that the information in that article. Amazing there were mostly only minor injuries.

Very reminiscent of several MD11 crashes, where the aircraft flipped onto its back, but stayed intact, apart from the wing breaking off.

Very very lucky group of people to survive that.

So glad to hear that everyone survived! Despite the questions over the weather, the quick response of the local fire crews saved many of those lives. For those interested, here's my translation of the Dutch article:

"A passenger airliner today crashed on landing at Osj in the central Asian country of Kyrgystan. The aircraft landed upside down. One of the wings broke off and burst into flames. About 40 meters beyond the end of the runway the wreck came to a stop. By a miracle, all 79 people aboard survived the accident.

"The aircraft that crashed was a Tupolev Tu-134 of the national company, Kyrgystan Airlines. Six people were wounded, the Minister of Emergency Affairs of the former Soviet republic reported. The cause of the crash is not yet known. but according to authorities the weather was very bad."

Next to the picture, "This is not the aircraft involved."          

Here's a picture of the aircraft in happier times:

First flight was in 1979.

If you look for the reg EX-020, it is about half way down. I think it lists every TU-134 ever built.

I know this is slightly OT, but at least it has to do with the aircraft...

Why do they have the nose window? Did someone sit/lie in that position to do visual checks of where they were? (I think not, but?)

I believe that is where the navigator would sit.

It's exactly for this purpose. It's a navigator's seat. Remember this is an old design and expected to fly over vast areas of Soviet Union where navigational aids were not always available. And, what's more, it's developed from military aircraft which needed it's own navigation even more.

Anyone got stats on the ratio of crashes of Tupolevs to all other commercial airliners?

Beyond that, great to hear nobody was injured.

Wow after looking at those pics thats incredible that no one died (if thats 100% true). I know the fuselage is basically 100% intact, but still its upside down and the one side is completely black from fire/smoke. Im trying to imagine how difficult it would be for people to fall out of their seats all while people are in a panic and there is fire smoke! I would think a lot of injuries would happen from people falling to the floor (in this case ceiling), when releasing their seatbelts.

This is obviously nothing more than a guess, but from what I can tell the aircraft either had a very hard angled landing that ripped the one wing off which allowed the plane to relatively gently roll upside down as it went across the ground. Or the one gear collapsed after the hard landing which then broke the wing off then the aircraft gently rolled over. Regardless that is soo good to hear no deaths so far.

Glad everyone survived.

That is my January trip down the drain though! I guess I'll have to take the risk of equipment swaps and replacements with UTAir, unless there are any other carriers who will be operating Tu-134s beyond 31DEC. Any ideas welcome.

I think that it ended up upside down might actually have helped as that would leave slightly more space to crawl out compared to the width of the aisle.
