8:02 am
the pilots all flying to use 6 wal-mart 78 just moments to react to the bird strike on divert and doing this aster they decided to let the plane on its belly in the cornfield with thought deploying landing gear or dumping fuel this video was taken from inside the aircraft as it accelerated along the runway with 226 passengers and 7 crew on board the seagulls not were sucked into the engines can be and you may have just seen their ever so fleetingly through the window with more on thursday's remarkable events here from monocultural. 226 passengers and 7 crew members of fuel airlines flight bound for crimea from moscow are celebrating their 2nd birthday the air bus a 321 collided with a flock of birds just shortly after takeoff from the capital's zuckoff ski

airport's the captain jameer yusupov had just seconds to make the right decision when he discovered the strike caused engine failure with 16 tons of fuel on board no ability to make a. back to the runway he knew that an emergency landing could result in a catastrophe to show you a little but oh after we to call the engines became unstable 1st the left one and then the right one we usually simulate the situations when one or 2 engines are off despite all our approach the plane was going down we realized that we didn't have much time just one or 2 minutes to make a decision in a blink of an eye this man with nerves of steel decided still land the aircraft in a nearby cornfield without using the landing gear and shutting off all power to prevent an explosion and various officials praised the crew for their professionalism during the spine chilling landing as well as for

a well organized evacuation that is something we acted in line with our training with similar situations like this before so there were no surprises the passengers were disciplined listen to our instructions and evacuated very quickly they did as we expected there was no panic on board even though the landing was rough the pilot did a great job he landed the plane really cafferty was to cook tell us please how do you feel now did you hurt your leg. you know it's better than if i was there lying on the field so everything is rather good the landing was good the pilots did a great job landed the plane on the belly everything he's fine the media was quick to make connections with the another such incidents one loss of life was a virgin thanks to pilot the miracle on the hudson involving a u.s. airways the aircraft flown by captain chesley sullenberger and jeffrey skiles hit a flock of geese after takeoff from new york city's la guardia airport and lost all

engine power i'm able to land at any available airport they had to ditch the jet in the hudson river just outside of manhattan with all of the 155 passengers a rescued by nearby ferries and bolts thanks to the heroic solved by the captain and his crew their relatives and loved ones self all the people involved will get to see them again ramana koester of artsy moscow region. only if the experts we spoke to say the pilots made all the right decisions under extreme pressure. i take my hat off to the pilots and to everybody onboard the crew on the passengers because this was a textbook emergency landing the video i've just seen of it was absolutely amazing i think he took a calculated risk he said right we are too near the ground by the time the landing gear gets down it might not have locked in place we'll go for what we call a belly flop and that's basically what he did and he landed it beautifully and this
8:06 am
is a bit like the if you remember the hudson river incident when the plane landed on the way the whole point is that he brought it down with the nose slightly out and so literally sailed over the cornfield and that's quite a rip so that's helped the landing these pilots did brilliantly because they were really quite low when the bird strike took place and the engine power dropped away almost completely so they had to look around for an open space in which to land and they didn't and as you can see they've done it brilliantly russia does have a history of having very good pilots that it is a profession that russians are very proud of having those who have it almost exactly 10 years ago there was what has become known as the miracle on the hudson they got a little bit higher before the birds hit them but this time they were geese and those a very big birds they lost both engines the pilot looked around the highly urbanized

area near new york couldn't see anywhere safe to land so he landed on the river and again like this event everybody survived. let's move the program on death of the screams former money military jeffrey epstein was caused by suicide according to the new york medical examiner's office the convicted paedophile was found dead in his jail cell on august 10th while awaiting trial on a sex trafficking charges but lawyers for the financier who had connections in high places in washington have said they're not happy with the findings of the autopsy the defense team fully intends to conduct its own independent and complete investigation into the circumstances and cause of mr epstein's death we are not satisfied with the conclusions of the medical examiner. the 66 year old multimillionaire was set to face trial over the alleged abuse of dozens of under-age girls on the creation of

a sex trafficking network just days before his death a manhattan court had released 1200 documents relating to the case he had repeatedly denied the charges against him last month epstein being placed on suicide watch after an apartment attempt at taking his own life well since the tycoon's death there have been numerous reports about the conditions he was living in some have suggested he was having to pay other inmates for protection others that he was sleeping on the floor and wasn't able to wash some even claim that death may not have been a suicide taking a closer look at all the speculation here's ilya to try and go. if there are screenwriters out there right now racking their brains over ideas for a new mega juicy plot i've got a perfect one for you the life and death of convicted paedophile jeffrey epstein who was at the same time a friend of the likes of presidents clinton and trump or you case prince andrew just how many skeletons in his claws a did this man have his death as
8:09 am
a real shocker and a staggering mystery some details of it though have been revealed to the public.
8:10 am
america baffled you really can't help asking questions. even though last month geoffrey epstein apparently already tried to kill themself a source within the law enforcement reported he was only put on suicide watch for less than a week plus it's been claimed epstein wasn't checked on every 30 minutes by guards and got deprived of his cellmate in violation of the prisons normal procedure there was also a rumor that surveillance cameras malfunctioned on the night when the death happened . only a day before the inmate was found unconscious a court released 1200 pages of documents detailing numerous claims of child abuse by him and his girlfriend was that the last drop of anguish will never find out. oh this is
8:11 am
a giant playground for fans of conspiracy theories these have been ranging from the idea that bill clinton had jeffrey epstein killed even president trump tweeted about that one to the russia did it kind of stories president from using his massive twitter platform $63000000.00 followers to spread a deranged conspiracy theory in a statement a clinton spokesman said the suggestion that the clintons were involved is ridiculous and of course not true and donald trump knows it you know this is just more recklessness what he's doing is dangerous a guy who had information that would have destroyed rich and powerful men's lives and dead in his jail cell how predictably russian it's hilarious and ultimately completely predictable that you would have leftist democrats and the media trying to pin something else on russia we haven't seen any ties to russia in the eps and that's the case we haven't seen any russian oligarchs that have been on this fly
8:12 am
list that we know of but anyway you can't turn away from the fact that mr epstein was close like i said with some of the most influential people on this planet most likely they had nothing to do with the death but all those politicians and money makers can now brave a sigh of relief because dead men don't speak the really aggravating thing to me is all the flying monkeys that are out there right now on conspiracy theories if you look at the facts of this case it was no question this was going to happen 1st of all in lock up settings like that there is no such thing as a personal privacy there there are no un control settings if rules are followed no shoelaces no belts no access to even as much as a finger nail clipper or radio show us the darn films what do the cameras have to say who had access to the cameras where are they this is a remarkably simple program just 1st show us what was recorded.
