Aviation Photo #2288947 Sukhoi SSJ-100-95B Superjet 100 (RRJ-95B) - Sukhoi

[ Medium Large ]
258 of 264
Sukhoi Superjet 100 test plane resting on engine pods and tail, after runoff on runway end 11 (i.e. near end 29), here seen from outside of the airfield perimeter fence. The word taildragger comes into mind. News agencies say undercarriage "failed" but gear appear completely retracted. (500 mm and crop - 1280 pixel)

A good photo of a not-so-good landing. Good there were no major injuries. Awaiting the official investigation results...

Great capture of this event! The gear in fact did 'fail'... wait for it (I'm sure the pilots did)... failed to make an appearance. Well, Sukhoi should be happy with the results, they now know that their little Superjet 100 can safely land on its engine pods if piloted by pilots with skill. Nice save!

Nice, timely shot!

Apparently, the undercarriage failed completely because the landing gear did not lower at all.

The emergency slide on the co-pilot side seems to be installed backwards.

Me and my friend were thinking maybe they forgot to lower the landing gear, or retracted the landing gear while in contact with the runway while speeding up after touching down. they probably thought they were in the air and pulled in the gear. hopefully its not a full loss and can be repaired
