Plane engines are created to withstand occasional bird strikes, but a collision with a flock of birds can result in serious trouble. "The plane landed and we all ran out".

"The first officer suffered chest injury, he is in hospital and will be alright", he said.

It's the stuff of nightmares, but one fantastic pilot safely made a terrifying emergency landing in a cornfield after "one engine caught fire and the other stopped working".

Some Russian officials suggested the flock of gulls that hit Yusupov's plane could have been attracted by an unauthorized garbage dump near the airport.

The actions of the crew and the landing itself have been compared to a 2009 incident known as the "Miracle on the Hudson", when an Airbus A320, flown by Captain Chesley Sullenberger and Jeffrey Skiles, performed a similar emergency belly landing on the Hudson River in NY. It has been reported that up to 55 people were injured and 23 hospitalized, with all but one being released after treatment.

According to local news reports, there were 233 people, including seven crew member on board the aircraft.

"The crew of the Ural Airlines flight showed fantastic skill and cool-headedness", said Yevgeny Kuyvashev, the governor of Yusupov's home region.

"After takeoff, birds got caught in the engines, with the left engine stalling immediately", Murzin said.

"Precisely due to their professionalism, self-possession and coordinated actions (they) managed to land a plane without tragic consequences", Ural Airlines said in a statement. The liner collided with a flock of seagulls. Several birds were trapped in both engines of the aircraft, which caused the engine to shut down.

"I can only say this to the passengers: it's a little bit my fault that they didn't make it to their destination".

Vitya Babin, 11, who was on board with his mother and sister, said passengers were not warned there would be an emergency landing.

Airports could also deal with the problem on the ground by monitoring birds with radar and restricting takeoffs when large flocks are in the area, Hansman said.

When the incident occurred, there were 16 tonnes of fuel aboard the aircraft.
