On the morning of August 15, an Airbus A321 made an emergency landing in a corn field outside Moscow, after losing its engines in a collision with a flock of birds. The Ural Airlines flight had just taken off from Zhukovsky, en route for the Crimean city of Simferopol. All 233 people on board survived, though 29 people have been hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.
