Unclear about what was on fire? I'd hope it wasn't a massive cabin fire so the only other likely explanation would be engine?
Seems to me like wing tanks on both sides are burning.

As a general guess you are more educated on air travel compared to an average pax. But it doesnt work like that on longhaul, and SU takes your jacket and coat out in business class on shorthaul too

EDIT - yes, of course I agree all bags should be left behind. Just for clarity!
Even bags with medication in? I've got asthma, a faint whiff of the fumes from a car fire had me wheezing. I would take my handbag with blue inhaler & spacer.

I would almost expect first responders to have some inhalers available you know...

True enough. I think I'd always make sure they were within arm's reach though to grab and pocket them if at all possible. As I say above, fortunately never had to try it out in real life.

I don't think there's very much can be done to prevent the bag issue. Possibly educating people to pocket these items, but other than banning cabin bags I'm not certain there's any other solution.

Anyhow, it remains to be seen what the final outcome here is going to be. Clearly many escaped, so praise to the crew for that. Deeply sad if any casualties confirmed, which seems likely.

You can see the burning plane landing here. It makes me cry just to see it. Vesti reports that everyone was able to evacuate.

Edited: Now 13 confirmed dead by medics.

It was squwaking 7700 for a while and did one circuit before landing, one would think the ARFF would have had plenty of time to get in place.....

Sorry to be cynical, but, SSS is Sukhoi Super Jet, or, Soviet Sh1t Jet . . . . . . . .

Certification crashes, Jurassic engine that sounds like a 732, wing spar problems, no spares or support . . . ask City Jet . . . Brussels Airlines , or Adria.

Of course, this or worse can happen to a Boeing or Airbus, but. . . . . . . . . wouldn't strap into one unless it was the last flight outta a war zone, sorry.

If reports of a total electrical failure correct, nothing odd about it. They probably needed more time for checklists / configure for landing with key systems out.

In the evacuation video, you can see some bodies being thrown on the slides, just after the FAs. Grim.

One reason we (leisure pax) now both travel in cargo trousers. Plenty of space for critical items.

Looked to me as if the gear was intact until the turn, but hey.
The landing was with nose high... looks like no MLG to me.

Shrug ... with flames coming out of the back, time to get it down is all that counts really, we train for a Vne descent, or full flaps and Vso depending on distance to run. Given that it appears the gear fell off, any time spent checking gear down was wasted ... still, I wasn't there, looks like they did a decent job.

IF rumors correct, there was NO in-flight fire, only electric failure and loss of comms due to a lightning strike. MLG collapsed on third touchdown after two bounces, fire broke out afterwards. Available video only shows the aircraft already on fire, sliding to a halt.

I'm pretty sure the dark spot is engine and they are sliding on the engines. Seems exactly like the one in Yakutsk where landing gears collapsed.

Three losses. The Yakutia accident on 10 October 2018 was a hull loss too.
