Baikal Airlines Flight 130 was a scheduled passenger route from Irkutsk to Moscow that crashed on January 3, 1994 killing all 124 people on board and one at ground.


On 3 January 1994, a Baikal Airlines Tupolev Tu-154M that took off from Irkutsk crashed after the crew ignored cockpit indicator warnings.[1][2][3]

When starting the #2 engine, the crew noticed a warning light signaling dangerous rotation of the starter. The crew believed this was a false warning and decided to take off. During initial climb, the starter failed, causing a fire in the #2 engine. The fire damaged all three hydraulic lines in the tail section of the aircraft. With all control surfaces disabled, the plane became uncontrollable, and eventually crashed near Mamony town. 125 people on board and 1 man on the ground were killed.
