Globus plane lands in Perm after engine failure

A Boeing 737 jet made an emergency landing in Perm on October 17 after one of its engines quit over Yekaterinburg.

No one was injured on the flight, which was traveling from Chita to Moscow with more than 100 people on board, the Moscow Times reports.

Pilots notified air traffic controllers of the issue as they flew near Yekaterinburg, after which it was decided that they would land in Perm.

Globus, a subsidiary of S7 airlines, operated the plane, which landed safely at 10:52 a.m., the Moscow Times reports.

The 100 passengers and seven crew members received food and lodging and were placed on a new plane that would take them to Moscow's Domodedovo Airport.

Investigators are looking into the cause of the incident.
