The cargo plane An-12 sat down at the airport almost immediately after departure, as it lost the cargo hatch. As reported in the press service of the airport, the wing was torn off by a strong air flow.
An-12, owned by the airline “Nimbus”, landed at the airport of Magan settlement 12 kilometers from Yakutsk. The airport noted that the plane before the flight was serviceable: it was prepared by the technicians who are part of the crew. They filled in a map-outfit for operational and technical maintenance of the vessel.
As the Telegram channel Mash learned , the An-12 carried gold: during the accident 9 tons of precious metal dropped out onto the runway. In total, the ship carried gold for 21 billion 600 million rubles.
