Sukhoi Superjet Makes Belly Landing in Iceland
A Sukhoi Superjet made a belly landing during a test flight on Sunday at Iceland’s Keflavik airport in Reykjavik, according to a statement by its Russian manufacturer.
The Superjet program hit uncertainty last year after one of its planes crashed in Indonesia during a promotional flight, in which 45 people were killed.
At the final stage of a test flight to evaluate the Sukhoi Superjet 100’s automatic landing system on Sunday, the aircraft “touched the runway with retracted landing gear,” Sukhoi Civil Aircraft said in a statement.
One certification center expert injured his leg during evacuation, but the other four people aboard were unharmed, the statement said.
