A Boeing 777 operated by Rossiya Airlines made an emergency landing in Moscow due to engine trouble.
A Boeing 777 operated by Rossiya Airlines made an emergency landing in Moscow at 4:44 a.m. local time due to engine trouble, less than a week after a similar aircraft flown by United Airlines suffered a dramatic blowout over Denver, shedding debris onto neighborhoods below.
The Rossiya Air flight was operating as a cargo service from Hong Kong to Madrid, according to an employee at Sheremetyevo International Airport.
The crew of the plane requested to make the emergency landing after one of the left engine control channels failed, according to Interfax. No injuries were reported.
The Boeing 777-300 (reg. EI-GET) landed during the night at 01:43 UTC (04:43 LT).
