are broadcasting live from our studios in moscow this is our team international incheon thomas going to have you with us as we recap week's top stories with our weekly program. all right 2 russian pilots entered aviation history on thursday morning after pulling off what has been described as a miraculous emergency landing there crimea bound ural airlines flight suffered twin engine failure after striking a flock of birds while taking off from moscow zuckoff ski airport but against the odds they were able to bring it down safely in a nearby field saving the lives of everyone on board this was the scene as people left the plane.
12:02 am
pilots of you 6178 have just moments to react to the bird strike and avert impending disaster they decided to land the plane on its belly in a cornfield without deploying the landing gear or dumping fuel if this video was taken from inside the aircraft as it accelerated along the runway the sea eagles that were sucked into the engines can be seen ever so fleetingly through the window with more on thursday's remarkable event here as are thousands of them on course. 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 a flock of birds just shortly after takeoff from the capital's zuckoff ski airport's the captain mere yusupov had just seconds to make the right decision when he discovered the strike caused engine failure with 16 tons of fuel on board
12:03 am
no ability to make it back to the runway he knew that an emergency landing could result in a catastrophe. 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 this man with nerves of steel decided still land the aircraft in a nearby cornfield 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 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.
12:04 am
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 kathleen 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 when the loss of life was a virgin thanks to a 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 risk used by nearby ferries and bolts thanks to the heroic solved by the captain
12:05 am
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 if you should experts 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 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 when the plane landed on the lake the whole point is that he brought it down with the nose slightly out and so literally it sailed over the cornfield and that's quite
12:06 am
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's 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. the death of a disgraced former money manager jeffrey epstein was caused by suicide this
12:07 am
according to the new york medical examiner's office the convicted pedophile who had connections in high places in washington was found dead in his jail cell on august 10th he was awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges of the time but lawyers for the financier has said that they're not really 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 repeatedly denied the charges against him last month epstein had been placed on suicide watch after an apparent attempt to take his own life now since the tycoon's death there have been numerous reports about the conditions that he was kept in
12:08 am
with take a look some have suggested he was having to pay inmates and other guards for protection others well they say that he was being prevented from washing in that you sleeping on the floor and there are some that claim his death may not even have been a suicide at all taking a closer look at all the speculation here is where he's really trying to go with commentary. if there are screenwriters out there right now racking their brains over ideas for a 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 did this man have his death is a real shocker and a staggering mystery some details of it though have been revealed to the public.
12:09 am
america baffled you really can't help asking questions. even though last month geoffrey epstein apparently already tried to kill themself
12:10 am
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 cellmate and violation of the prisons normal procedure there was also rumor that surveillance cameras malfunctioned on that 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 will 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 about that one to the russia did it kind of stories president from using his
12:11 am
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 his fly list that we know of but anyway you can't turn away from the fact that mr epstein was 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
12:12 am
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 busy 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. another mass anti-government rally has been filling the streets of hong kong as the city's protest campaign reached into the 11th consecutive weekend. hundreds of thousands have taken part in the demonstration which was only given permission to
