Burning Superjet-100 plane crash-lands at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport

Russian pilots landed a flaming Superjet-100 aircraft at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport, after an in-flight emergency forced a crash landing.

Aeroflot Flight SU1492 declared an emergency shortly after departing Sheremetyevo on Sunday, and circled Moscow before crash landing. Video footage captured from the airport shows the Sukhoi Superjet-100 touching down as it leaves a massive trail of fire and smoke in its wake.

Fire crews rushed to the scene, along with dozens of ambulances. All 78 passengers were evacuated from the burning plane, and at least 10 injuries have been reported.

The commuter aircraft had made several flights earlier on Sunday, and was heading to Murmansk before its terrifying emergency landing.
