A Russian plane Yakovlev Yak-40, operated by the Russian charter airline AeroBratsk, wrongly landed on an unfinished runway at Olekminsk Airport, Russia.
On December 29, 2020, performing a flight from Bratsk Airport (BTK) to Olekminsk Airport (OLZ), Yakovlev Yak-40, registered as RA-87397, mistakenly landed on the runway which was under construction. There were no reported casualties or damage to the aircraft.
