A story of the sky, a long-awaited dream, and a miracle that made global headlines.
Damir Yusupov could never have imagined that one day he would be hailed as a hero. As a child he dreamed of flying and was certain that he would follow in the footsteps of his aviator father, but fate seemed to have other plans for him. As years went by, even those closest to him lost hope, but Damir finally managed to make his dream a reality and became an airline pilot. In August 2019 his courage and skill saved 233 lives when he brought his plane down safely in a cornfield after a complete engine failure.
