Plane crash at Moscow Sheremetyevo airport this afternoon.

Aeroflot Superjet 100 returned to airport soon after leaving and made two attempts to land, successful on the second. Apparently only one casualty which is remarkable seeing the extent of the fire.

@TTman 

Yes, I was going on the early BBC report.

Looks like it landed in flames.

The plane was not on fire in the air.... ! ...  it had a problem and was returning ... looks like it did a "hard" landing ,... bouncing off the runway, and then a bounced bad landing, when it caught fire...

new video ....

Very sad for those involved.

Russia does seem to be making more information available about accidents like this, at one time very little if anything would hhave ben reported.

So sad that maybe more people might have been saved if passengers hadn’t tried to retrieve their hand luggage.
