At least 41 dead as plane makes emergency landing
At least 41 people are thought to have died after a fire on board a Russian passenger plane forced the aircraft to make an emergency landing at a Moscow airport.
Officials said a criminal investigation has been launched into the incident, which saw an Aeroflot Sukhoi Superjet aircraft catch fire shortly after taking off from Sheremetyevo International Airport in the north of Russia’s capital.
Footage shows the plane engulfed in flames as it sped down the runway, with black smoke billowing from its tail.
