Event details

A Russian-made Sukhoi passenger jet made an emergency landing on Sunday, trailing a gigantic plume of flame and black smoke and skidding to a stop on fire and with only its nose-wheel in view of passengers waiting to board flights at Moscow’s main airport. The fiery landing killed 13 people, according to Tass, a Russian state news agency. "Amazing," one man can be heard saying on one of many videos filmed from inside Sheremetyevo airport and posted on social media. RIA, another state news agency, initially reported that all 78 passengers evacuated on escape slides, with six people were injured. Interfax, another Russian news agency, reported 10 injuries. The reports of deaths began to emerge later. Videos showed passengers running over the tarmac, away from the burning plane. The flight by Aeroflot, the Russian national airline, took off from Moscow bound for Murmansk, a port city in northern Russia. The pilots radioed a distress call immediately after takeoff, Interfax reported, and the plane circled back for an emergency landing.
