41 people, including two kids, on board a Aeroflot (Russian national airlines) passenger plane were killed on Sunday, after the aircraft caught fire as it made a bumpy emergency landing at a Moscow airport.

The aircraft departed Moscow’s largest airport, Sheremetyevo, to Murmansk, in the Far North, but soon after getting airborne the pilots reported „technical problems” and decided to return.

Russian media reported also that the aircraft suffered a lightning strike and that’s why the crew tryed to return to Sheremetyevo.

Television footages has showed the airplane crash bouncing along the tarmac at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport, before the rear part of the plane suddenly burst into flames.

Many passengers on board then escaped via the plane’s emergency slides that inflated after the hard landing.

The plane had been carrying 73 passengers and five crew members.

The aircraft involved is a Russian-made Sukhoi Superjet 100, the very first airplane built in Russia after the Soviet Union colapse in the early ’90’s.

The Sukhoi Superjet flies in commercial operation since April 2011, with no fatal incidents until now.

Biggest operators are Russian national carrier Aeroflot (having 60 aircrafts in its fleet) and Mexican carrier Interjet, having 22 jets in operation. In Europe, Irish Cityjet and Belgian Brussels Airlines are operating Sukhoi Superjets.
