S-7 Airline has denied reports its A-310 airbus with 184 passengers and 11 crewmembers on board crash-landed in Siberia Tuesday. According to the Emergency Situations Ministry, the A-310 en route from Moscow to Irkutsk, the home airport for popular tourist destination Lake Baikal in Siberia, made a forced landing in Irkutsk earlier Tuesday. The ministry said it had received a report of landing gear malfunction. "Reports about an emergency landing are nonsense," an S-7 spokesman said, adding the landing was routine. There were no casualties. The airplane is now in a maintenance hangar undergoing technical inspection. On July 9, an A-310 airbus owned by S-7 Airline crashed killing 124 people on the way from Moscow to Irkutsk, the home airport for popular tourist destination Lake Baikal in Siberia. It veered off the runway upon landing and caught fire after hitting a concrete wall and plowing into garages. On May 3, another Airbus operated by Armenian carrier Armavia crashed as it was preparing to land at the airport of Adler, off Russia's Black Sea coast. All 113 passengers and crew died. In October 2001, Siberia Airline (now S-7) Tu-154 en route from Tel Aviv to Novosibirsk in Siberia was accidentally shot down by a Ukrainian missile S-200, killing 78 people onboard. In July 2001, another Tu-154 crashed near Irkutsk, claiming the lives of 145 people.
