An engine failure has caused a Antonov AN-124 to make an emergency landing at Novosibirsk-Tolmachevo Airport (OVB) in Central Russia.

During take-off a failure was reported on the number 2 engine. This prompted the crew to initiate emergency protocol and conduct a go around followed by an immediate landing.
It is reported that the cowling from the no.2 engine was found in a nearby field.
Inspectors from the Investigative Committee of Russia have been sent to carry out a preliminary investigation and establish the circumstances of the incident.
