istanbul - The pilot who carried out a successful emergency landing at Istanbul airport on Thursday almost won a high degree of honor in his country. Kite Alexander Akopov safely landed a heavily damaged Airbus A320 in the Turkish capital.

During a very heavy hailstorm, little of the device's nose remained. In addition, AtlasGlobal's Airbus window was almost impossible to see. Yet Akopov left the box with some art and fly work safely.

'I fly thirty years and have never experienced such a thing,' says Akopov in media in his homeland Ukraine. 'I think the landing went well. This is what we are being trained for, 'the pilot spoke soberly.

With his handsome maneuvers, Akopov might save the lives of 121 passengers and six crew members. Upon leaving the device, some crew members knew that survival of the penitent situation felt 'as their second birth'.\n  \n   \n    \n    \n   \n   \n   \n      \n   \n     The hull is heavily damaged by huge hailstones.\n    \n   \n     Photo: screenshot\n    \n   \n   \n   \n      \n   \n     Social media is taking a picture of the bad view in the cockpit.\n    \n   \n     Photo: screenshot
