Reports say that, that in flight the oil temperature sensor was triggered in one of the Il-114-300 engines. There was nothing critical.. However, the crew, guided by directives, decided to land.
UAC representatives note, that the landing of the aircraft at the Zhukovsky airfield took place in the normal mode.
In general, during test flights, such situations are quite commonplace and typical for testing a variety of airliners.. Therefore, the very presentation of information by individual resources about, that "an emergency landing was made near Moscow", do not stand up to criticism.
