pilots of flight you 6178 had just moments to react to the bird strike and of impending disaster that decided to land the plane really quickly on its belly in a cornfield without having time to dump from the fuel tanks this video taken from inside that airbus a 321 as it accelerated of a want to take off 226 passengers 7 crew aboard them that you don't want to see that single sucked into the engines not one but 2 you see them fleetingly there with more and thursday's remarkable events from a culture of who was at the site within the hour. 226 passengers and 7 crew members of ural airlines flight bound for crimea from moscow are celebrating their 2nd birthday the air bus a 321 collided with
4:03 am
a flock of birds just shortly after takeoff from the capital's zuckoff ski airport's the captain jameer yusupov had just seconds to make the right decision when he discovered the strike caused engine failure with 16 tons of fuel on board no ability to make it back to the runway he knew that an emergency landing could result in a catastrophe to show you about the after we took off the engines became unstable 1st the left one and then the right one we usually simulate the situations when one or 2 engines are off despite all our efforts the plane was going down we realized that we didn't have much time just one or 2 minutes to make a decision in a blink of an eye man with nerves of steel decided still land the aircraft in a near. by ordered field without using the landing gear and shutting off all power to prevent an explosion and various officials praised the crew for their professionalism during the spine chilling landing as well as for
4:04 am
a well organized evacuation that is something we acted in line with our training we've simulated situations like this before so there were no surprises the passengers were disciplined listen to our instructions and evacuated very quickly they did as we expected there was no panic on board even though the landing was rough the pilot did a great job he landed the plane really carefully just cook tell us please how do you feel now did you hurt your leg. you know it's better than if i was there lying on the field so everything is rather good the landing was good the pilots did a great job landed the plane on the belly everything is fine the media was quick to make connections with the another such incidents one loss of life was a virgin thanks to pilot the miracle on the hudson involving a u.s. airways the aircraft flown by captain chesley sullenberger and jeffrey skiles hit

a flock of geese after takeoff from new york city's la guardia airport and lost all engine power i'm able to land at any available airport they had to ditch the jet in the hudson river just outside of manhattan with all of the 155 passengers a rescued by nearby ferries and bolts thanks to the heroic solved by the captain and his crew their relatives and loved ones self all the people involved will get to see them again ramana koester of artsy moscow region there was remarkable was it was a variation express we spoke to say the pilots made all the right decisions under extreme pressure. i take my hat off to the pilots and to everybody onboard the crew and the passengers because this was a textbook emergency landing the video i've just seen of it was absolutely amazing i think he took a calculated risk he said right we are too near the ground by the time the landing gear gets down it might not have locked in place we'll go for what we call
4:06 am
a belly flop and that's basically what he did and he landed it beautifully and this is a bit like the if you remember the hudson river incident where the plane landed on the lake the whole point is that he brought it down with the nose slightly out and so literally sailed over the cornfield and that's quite a robust crop so that helped the landing these pilots did brilliantly because they were really quite low when the bird strike took place and the engine tower dropped away almost completely so they had to look around for an open space in which to land and they didn't and as you can see they've done it brilliantly russia does have a history of having very good pilots that it is a profession that russians are very proud of having those who have it placed exactly 10 years ago there was what has become known as the miracle on the hudson they got a little bit higher before the birds hit them but this time they were geese and those a very big birds they lost both engines the pilot looked around the highly urbanized

area near new york couldn't see anywhere safe to land so he landed on the river and again like this event everybody survived. new york medical examiner's office said on friday that the death of disgraced former money manager jeffrey epstein was caused by suicide the convicted paedophile was found dead in his jail cell last week while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges but lawyers for the financing who had connections in high places in washington have said they're not happy with the findings of the autopsy. the defense team fully intends to conduct its own independent and complete investigation into the circumstances and cause of mr epstein's death we are not satisfied with the conclusions of the medical examiner the 66 year old multimillionaire was set to face trial over the alleged abuse of dozens of underage girls and the creation of a sex trafficking network just days before his death a manhattan court had released 1200 documents relating to the case he had
4:08 am
repeatedly denied the charges against him last month epstein that been placed on suicide watch to offer an apparent attempt at taking his own life since the tycoon's death of been numerous reports about the conditions he was living in some of suggested he was having to pay other inmates for protection others that he was sleeping on the floor and was unable to wash some even claim the death may not have been a suicide taken a closer look at all the speculation. if there is train riders out there right now racking their brains over ideas for a new mega juicy plot i've got a perfect one for you the life and death of convicted paedophile jeffrey epstein who was at the same time a friend of the likes of presidents clinton and trump or you case prince andrew just how many skeletons in his claws a dis man have his death as a real shocker and a staggering mystery some details of it though have been revealed to the public.
4:09 am
america baffled you really can't help asking questions.
4:10 am
even though last month jeffrey epstein apparently already tried to kill him self a source within the law enforcement reported he was only put on suicide watch for less than a week plus it's been claimed epstein wasn't checked on every 30 minutes by guards and got deprived of his cell mate in violation of the prison's normal procedure there was also a rumor that surveillance cameras malfunctioned on the night when the death happened. only a day before the inmate was found unconscious a court released 1200 pages of documents detailing numerous claims of child abuse by him and his girlfriend was that the last drop of anguish we'll never find out. oh this is a giant playground for fans of conspiracy theories these have been ranging from the idea that bill clinton had jeffrey epstein killed even president trump tweeted
4:11 am
about that one to the russia did it kind of stories president from using his massive twitter platform $63000000.00 followers to spread a doraine conspiracy theory in a statement a clinton spokesman said the suggestion that the clintons were involved is ridiculous and of course not true and donald trump knows it you know this is just more recklessness what he's doing is dangerous a guy who had information that would have destroyed rich and powerful men's lives and dead in his jail cell how predictably russian it's hilarious and ultimately completely predictable that you would have leftist democrats and the media trying to pin something else on russia we haven't seen any ties to russia in the eps and steve case we haven't seen any russian oligarchs that have been on this fly list that we know of but anyway you can't turn away from the fact that mr epstein was
4:12 am
close like i said with some of the most influential people on this planet most likely they had nothing to do with the death but all those politicians and money makers can now brave a sigh of relief because dead men don't speak the really aggravating thing to me is all the flying monkeys that are out there right now on conspiracy theories if you look at the facts of this case it was no question this was going to happen 1st of all in lock up settings like that there is no such thing as a personal privacy there there are no un control settings if rules are followed no shoelaces no belts no access to even as much as a finger nail clipper or radio show us the darn films what do the cameras have to say who had access to the cameras where are they this is a remarkably simple program just 1st show us what was recorded. a human rights activist has been pardoned in bahrain after his 3 years behind bars for making critical comments online about the government maintains she was jailed for
