BREAKING!! At least one person dead after burning plane lands at Moscow airport



MOSCOW - An airplane belonging to flagship Russian carrier Aeroflot landed in Moscow covered in flames and with smoke billowing from the rear Sunday, and officials said one person died and at least four were injured.

Harrowing video aired by Russian news channel Rossiya-24 showed passengers leaping from the front of the burning aircraft onto an inflatable slide and staggering across tarmac and grass after the emergency landing at Sheremetyevo Airport.

The plane, a Sukhoi SSJ-100 regional jet, had taken off for the northern city of Murmansk but returned when a fire broke out, Russian news agencies cited sources as saying. There reportedly were 78 people aboard.

Russia's Investigative Committee said one person was confirmed dead and four injured. The Emergencies Ministry said six people had been hospitalized.

May they Rest in Peace. I couldn't imagine a worse way to go.. burning to death.

Hopefully it was smoke inhalation that did them in before the flames hit them.

Condolences to their families.

(*now waiting for the know-it-all fireman to come on the thread and tells us how they really died)
