Action is set at the fictional mountainous airport of Bidri. An earthquake is destroying the runway and a dam and an oil refinery.

Explosion and fire of the airliner (now clearly identified as a Tupolev Tu-114 minus its engines).

Tupolev Tu-114

But the airframe in flames is the central part of a Tupolev Tu-114 (note the space between windows over the wing). This is a Continuity error : the Kuznetsov NK-12MV turboprops removed, the ill-fated twinjet is now a four engined burning plane ...


Tupolev Tu-154B

Registration CCCP-85131, c/n 75A-131.
First seen landing at Bridi airport then during the earthquake.


After several disaster, it's a mock which takes off.

... and eventually landed in a poor condition ! But the real airframe after a last flight on 05 October 1979, was used as instructional airframe at Krivoy Rog Technical School, Ukraine (at least until 2013). By some coincidence, 1980 saw three landing accidents in which a Tupolev Tu-154 had lost its rear section, the first three with such result.
