Russian passenger plane makes emergency landing in cornfield near Moscow

A Russian passenger plane performed an emergency landing earlier today (August 15) shortly after taking off from Moscow’s Zhukovsky International Airport.

The Crimea-bound plane was forced to land after it was struck by a flock of birds and lost power in both engines.
