A Russian airliner carrying 226 passengers made an emergency landing in a cornfield outside Moscow’s  Zhukovsky International Airport on Thursday after hitting a flock of birds during take-off, causing both engines to malfunction, according to the airline.

Ural Airlines pilot Damir Yusupov was called a “hero” by Russian media for successfully landing the plane with the engines off and the landing gear up, according to Reuters.

The Ministry of Health said 23 passengers suffered mostly minor injuries in the landing, which state television dubbed the “miracle over Ramensk” in a reference to 2009’s “Miracle on the Hudson” near New York City.
