Tu-154 plane starts dancing in the air after takeoff
The Office of the Military Prosecutor of the Moscow region has launched investigation into the incident with a Tu-154 airplane of the Defense Ministry. The incident occurred on Chkalovsky airbase in the Moscow region on April 29. The pilots managed to land the plane and prevent the air crash, but it seems that it happened by miracle.
The investigation was launched after the amateur videoof the incident appeared on the Internet. The clip shows a Tu-154 aircraft swinging in the air soon after takeoff. It can be seen that the plane is very hard to control. What is worse, the pilots had to conduct all the maneuvers at low altitudes. However, they managed to avoid the crash, and the Tu-154 landed safely.
Reporters found out that the plane had not been used for six or even ten years before the bizarre flight. The Tupolev aircraft was supposed to be relocated for repairs, so it was decided to test the plane in the air. Instead of flying, however, the plane started whirling and dancing.
