    Default Aeroflot SSJ100 Crashed in Moscow

    BBC News; Sunday 05 May 2019
    Moscow plane fire: At least 41 killed on Aeroflot jet

    At least 41 people were killed after a Russian plane made an emergency landing and burst into flames at Sheremetyevo airport in Moscow.

    Videos on social media show passengers using emergency exit slides to escape the burning Aeroflot aircraft.

    Two children and a flight attendant were among the dead, Russian media reports.

    One witness said it was a "miracle" anyone escaped the jet, which was carrying 78 passengers and five crew.

    Aeroflot, Russia's national carrier, said the plane was forced to return to the airport "for technical reasons", but did not elaborate.

    The aircraft, a Sukhoi Superjet-100, departed Sheremetyevo airport at 18:02 local time (15:02 GMT) for the city of Murmansk.

    The crew issued a distress signal when "malfunctions" occurred shortly after departure.

    After making an emergency landing at the airport, the plane's engines caught fire on the runway, Aeroflot said in a statement.

    The crew "did everything to save the passengers," who were evacuated in 55 seconds, the firm said.

    Watch the film, there is no sign of fire trucks ambulances or any assistance for evacuating pax, all this in spite of the pilot advising ATC prior to landing that he had a fire onboard. How would you like to land there!!!???

    My thoughts also to the families, but I would say they were royally let down!
