Towards Dyatlov Pass

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I came over from Moscow, Arkhangelsk and Naryan-Mar to Khantiy-Mansiysk with my Tu-134 en-route for Siberia.

I thought it would be nice to sit in another cockpit for some hours before flying further east with the Tupolev. Ural is not that far away, so I decided to make a trip to the mysterial Dyatlov Pass area with a trustworthy Il-14.

You know what/where Dyatlov Pass is?

This plane already had served with the Polar flying detachement of Aeroflot!

Weather was not bad, and so we - two pilots, seven passengers - took of into the skies of the West-Siberian lowland.

Crossing the confluence of Ob and Irtysh near Khantiy Mansiysk

Then, after an hour, we came closer to the mountains, which hided their summits in clouds. The ascending terrain was still covered by snow.

But suddenly, our plane got slower and lost altitude. I found no reason, weather was still comfortable (clouds around the mountain tops, but no strong winds or turbulences, no precipitation). Our plane was last seen very low heading towards the mountains by a hunter skiing in the woods...

Nice! I like Russian airports. I plan to take my NGX in S7 livery for a ride in the far east.

Thanks Mark, HLJames, Bar and Ed for your comments!

There may be a couple of reasons for this new incident (less or more probably ones, I'd only exclude the Yeti). I rather believe in carburetor icing, obviously I didn't find the correct switch.

Harald, you are in a class of your own...

These are places - planes, even - I would not have come into contact with, anywhere else!    

May your carbs de-ice in good time...

Thanks WingZ and Erich!

At least I can recommend the USHH scenery. One of the freeware masterpieces which can be found at Avsimrus. You'll see more shots of them in the future - we all survived the new Dyatlov incident! Next destination: Podkamennaya Tunguska...

edetroit - if you're serious then Tunguska is the site of a massive meteor strike, or alien nuke in the early 1900s.

 

If you already knew, then my apologies.  :hi:

... while the Podkamennaya Tunguska I mentioned above is the site of a former emergency landing strip at the place where river Podkamennaya Tunguska - its upstream area was the site of the meteor strike - flows into river Yenisey.
