Транспортен самолет Ил-76 с регистрационен номер RF-76801, принедлежащ на министерството на вътрешните работи на Русия, се разби при излитане от летище Мирни в Република Саха (Якутия). При катастрофата загинали всичките 11 души на борда - членове на основния и резервния екипаж.
Самолетът пристигнал от летище Ермолино, Калужка област и след разтоварването му излетял отново около 02:49 ч. московско време (01:49 ч. българско време) за Иркутск, но не успял да набере височина, а едва 20-ина метра и с крен надясно прелетял 2,5 км от края на пистата където се забил в натрупване от рудна шлака. При удара се разпаднал на части и възпламенил.
Катастрофата станала в безлюдна местност, поради което жертви на земята няма.
Бордовите самописци са открити.

Военно-транспортный самолет Ил-76, бортовой номер RF-76801, принадлежащий Внутренним войскам МВД России, разбился в воскресенье после вылета из аэропорта города Мирный в Якутии. Находившиеся на борту 11 человек - члены основного и сменного экипажей - погибли.
Самолет вылетел в воскресенье утром из Мирного без груза на борту и взял курс на Иркутск. Он упал после столкновения с возвышенностью в трех километрах от аэропорта и загорелся.
Самолет упал в безлюдном месте, поэтому разрушений жилых домов и производственных строений на месте падения нет.
Самолет выполнял плановый полет по замене личного состава органов внутренних дел в Северо-Кавказском регионе РФ. Дозаправка должна была состояться в Норильске.
Во время вылета из аэропорта Мирный погода была ясная, скорость ветра составляла 6 метров в секунду. В момент отрыва от взлетно-посадочной полосы самолет взлетел с креном на правую сторону и продолжал полет на высоте около 20-30 метров на протяжении 2 километров и натолкнулся на высокий рудный отвал.
Бортовые самописцы самолета были найдены в 2,5 километрах от взлетно-посадочной полосы аэропорта. Идет расследование.

Cargo Plane Crash
Russia/Yakutia/Yakutsk/Mirny Airport (MJZ)
A Russian heavy-lift cargo plane, owned by the Russian Ministry of Interior, crashed on takeoff Sunday in Siberia, killing all 11 crew members on board, officials said.
The cause of Sunday's crash was not yet known. The four-engine plane had just taken off from Mirny in the Sakha Republic and climbed to a height of 20-30 metres when it banked to the right.
The plane was unable to gain altitude and hit a slag heap from an old mine. It crashed, exploding on impact. The plane, which was headed to Irkutsk, was carrying no cargo but its fuel tanks were full.
The IL-76 with registration RF-76801 crashed about a mile from the runway 24 at Mirny in open fields.
No one on the ground was reported hurt.
The bodies of all 11 crew members were recovered.
Flying conditions were good, with clear skies, light winds and temperatures of minus -24 deg C.

Карго самолет Boeing 707 с регистрационен номер ST-AKW и принадлежащ на суданската авиокомпания Azza Transport, се разби минути след излитането си от летище Шарджа край Дубай, Обединените Арабски Емирства. Самолетът бил арендован от авиокомпанията Sudan Airways и изпълнявал полет SUD2241 с направление Хартум, Судан. Очевидци разказват, че самолетът се наклонил внезапно надясно при опита си да набере височина и паднал на километър северно от летището. При катастрофата, последвала експлозия и изгорял напълно. Шестчленният екипаж загинал. Самолетът превозвал товар от 31 тона, споделят властите на летището. Намерени са бордовите самописци.
Все още няма официална версия за причините на катастрофата, но една от възможните, заключавайки от разказите на очевидците, е недобре закрепен товар, което би довело до неустойчивост на самолета при излитането.

|Military plane, helicopter collide off California
USA/CA/off the San Diego County coast and 15 miles east of San Clemente Island - The nighttime collision of a Coast Guard aircraft on a rescue mission and a Marine helicopter left nine people feared dead at sea Friday as investigators tried to solve the mystery of how the aircrews failed to see each other in a heavily used military training area.
Military aircraft and ships searched the ocean off Southern California for any sign of the victims while investigators gathered recordings of air traffic controllers and pilot communications. The search covered 644 square miles of ocean but focused on a debris field 50 miles off the San Diego coast.
The crash involved the Coast Guard C-130 plane (registration 1705) with a seven-member crew from Coast Guard Air Station Sacramento and a Marine Corps AH-1W Super Cobra with two aboard as it flew in formation near the Navy's San Clemente Island, a site with training ranges for amphibious, air, surface and undersea warfare. The Cobra and its crew are part of Marine Aircraft Group 39, based at Camp Pendleton, and the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, which is headquartered at Miramar. It was not known whether the pilots were aware of each other before the 7:10 p.m. Thursday collision.
