On September 7, 2010, the Alrosa Tu-154M aircraft operated a YM516 passenger flight along the Polyarnyy – Domodedovo route, but 3.5 hours after takeoff, there was a complete loss of power supply on board, which led to the shutdown of the on-board navigation systems. The crew made an emergency landing of the airliner (visually) at the former Izhma airport (Komi Republic) on a runway that had long been decommissioned and unsuitable for aircraft of this type, which did not have light-signaling equipment and radio transceivers. After landing during run, the aircraft rolled 164 meters outside the runway and drove into the forest. On board the aircraft were 81 people (9 crew members and 72 passengers), none of them were injured.
