A video made on board of the plane that was heroically landed by a Ukrainian pilot in Istanbul pic.twitter.com/WRDIPeaJunOn July 27, Ukrainian pilot Oleksandr Akopov landed an emergency plane in terrible weather conditions in Istanbul, saving lives of 121 passengers and six crew members. The pilot landed the plane in Ataturk by listening to directions of Istanbul traffic controllers and by looking outside through side windows, as front windows were damaged by the elements. For that, he needed to tilt the plane to the side.
