On 2nd January 1979 an Aeroflot Ilyushin Il-14 suffered engine failure not long after take off from the Soviet Antarctic station Molodyozhnaya. 4 of the 7 passengers on the flight died.

What's interesting about this crash is the wreckage is still largely intact and can be viewed on google earth.

Some details about the Ilyushin Il-14:





The Ilyushin Il-14 (NATO reporting name "Crate") was a Soviet twin-engine commercial and military personnel and cargo transport aircraft that first flew in 1950 and entered service in 1954. Il-14 was also manufactured in East Germany by VVB Flugzeugbau, in Czechoslovakia as the Avia 14, and in China under the Chinese designation Y-6. The Ilyushin Il-14 was eventually replaced by the Antonov An-24 and Yakovlev Yak-40.

And finally here is the crash site on google earth:



67°40'16.57"S 45°49'37.27"E

Russia should clean the mess up. There are supposed to be very strict environmental laws covering Antarctica, obviously they aren't policed.

The whole base has been abandoned.

You can see it if you zoom out.

or , being its at best -19 and in a remote location , its rather hard to clean it up.

A small aircraft that crashed decades ago isn't an environmental problem.

Good points

This is also why it's so well preserved I guess.

What about the mess left at the bottom of the sea? That seems alot larger and alot more problamatic than this plane in antarctica.

What happened to the other 3 survivors? Interesting factoid: apparently Antarctica is one of the driest places on earth.... that is why things remain so well preserved (?) for long periods. Reminds me of "The Charlemagne Pursuit" by Steve Berry.

The plane crashed right after take off so the base was nearby.

I assume they got taken there.

There was a US Navy C-130 that crashed, although not seriously, but it could not be flown back out. It was left off the side of the "runway", getting almost buried by snow.

Eventually the USN decided to get it fixed and fly it back out, which they did after 13 years.

I do not understand why it was not covered in snow. From 1979 and until now there was no serious snow storm in Antarctica?
Maybe it is a gate to reptilian underworld?

There is not a lot of snow there. It is a very arid environment. And also that pesky thing called wind.

I had a brief look for more details without success. The image is grim in its context and morbidly fascinating. A silent grave marker of 4 deaths. I was curious regarding the bodies. Were they buried at the site or returned to their families?

Betcha an ATS member is rapidly googling for a UFO, NWO or CIA connection

That reminds me of a time in the 1970s when the Americans at McMurdo would just bulldoze their waste off the ice shelf.

I would hazard that there are very few biological threats on that planewreck.

Yeah I couldn't find a whole lot about it either.

Seems to be a gate to the hollow earth though.

Russia is hardly the only country to leave crashed aircraft lying around, i believe it's in the Antarctic that there are the remains of several US WW2 aircraft still lying around? (didn't they try to recover one a few years back and it catch fire after weeks of repairs?)

No, why would there have been aircraft during WW2 crashed on Antarctica?

Maybe you are thinking of Greenland and Alaska.

After checking it was actually Greenland (thought it was Antarctica for some reason) the fact remains though that it isn't only Russia that has left the remains of aircraft lying around in previously unspoiled parts of the world
