From the BBC https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-48171392
A Russian passenger plane has made an emergency landing at Moscow airport after a fire broke out mid-flight, state media report.

Videos on social media show passengers using emergency exit slides to escape the Aeroflot aircraft.

Other footage shows the plane landing while on fire and black smoke billowing from it on the tarmac.
Initial reports on Russian media suggest all 78 passengers on-board were evacuated.
It remains unclear how many people have been injured in the large blaze. The aircraft is a reportedly a Sukhoi Superjet-100 that had been bound for the city of Murmansk.

BBC reporting all safe “according to Russian Media”.

Fingers crossed. From videos, they’re lucky if so.

Fingers crossed all are ok.

i will be the first to say it, emergency landing, big fire yet people still taking their hand baggage with them (including if I’m nit mistaken a couple of larger “wheelie bags”

i know as professionals we bang on about this all th time but there is a possibility here of injuries or worse because of it.

Going by the size of the fire, the crew did a good job getting it quickly back to the airport and pax off!

Fortunately I’ve never been in this situation. I think it’s hard to judge people based on these events otherwise - very much operating on adrenaline and instincts, grabbing bag could be very much a subconscious decision. Same as people in burning buildings who instinctively go for the way they came in, rather than the nearest exit.

Only way to stop it would be to ban cabin bags.

Still, if they’ve got out of that it’s a significant achievement by the crew.

EDIT - yes, of course I agree all bags should be left behind. Just for clarity!

Some video angles show appliances and water jets.

Still mixed reports re casualties. Would be very (pleasantly) surprised if everyone makes it out - the rear seems well alight as it lands and comes to a stop. By the time the slides deploy half the plane is engulfed on the outside at least.

Yeps...
Looks like firefighters were...not where they had to be considering the plane TURNED BACK and flames could be seen before/when TAKING LAND.

Looking like 12 plus 1 crew. Sad day again. Lucky to make it back to the airport at all to be honest.

UNCONFIRMED discussion on Russian social media sites suggest linghtning strike and total electric failure (including loss of communications) on climbout, bounced twice on landing, on third touchdown MLG failed and fire broke out. 'Sources' at airport now speak of 12 casualties in rear rows.

Appears to be a rather poor performance from the side of ARFF, no fire trucks visible for at least 90 seconds following door opening, all this with a known emergency (even if there was no communications with the aircaft, twr should have raised the alarm on seeing the aircraft returning).

Russian citizens cannot afford loosing their passport - it would take good half a year to make the new one, and you are semi-paralysed during that time as a citizen, business owner, employee, property owner, pensioner etc. On the other side they all perfectly know there will be no compensation for damages on domestic flight accident. So dont blame people they want their stuff out with them...

Well it would be extremely surprising that everyone got out of this one (but obviously hope so).
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?

Whenever I fly as pax I always keep wallet, phone, and passport in my pockets for this reason. Not that it would take so long, but it’s one less bit of hassle.
