A Russian plane exploded in a fireball as it made an emergency landing at Moscow’s main international airport yesterday killing at least 41 people. Passengers were seen fleeing from the stricken Sukhoi Superjet at Sheremetyevo airport in horrific footage.
The Aeroflot plane made an emergency landing after a fire on board soon after takeoff from Moscow to the Arctic city of Murmansk. Flames were seen flaring from the rear of the Russian-built aircraft with a reported 78 on board. The stricken plane was clearly visible from the main terminals at the airport in the north of Moscow.
