Siberian Crash 

Irkutsk disaster highlights shortcomings

Siberian Airlines, now known as S7, and the Irkutsk airport are being scrutinized after the crash of an Airbus A-310 on July 9, killing 122 people. While the crash was widely covered in the press, less reported was the fact that several S7 flights had emergency landings in the days following the crash, including two flights landing in Irkutsk.
