I hear it's a Perm An-24 giving out a false 'alarm' signal, and that the aircraft has now touch down, no hijack, and awaiting checks.

The East Line airline company has rejected information about the hijacking of the An-24 plane. The emergency signal went off spontaneously, the head of the company's public relations department told RBC. East Line is the managing company of the Domodedovo airport. The source noted that the crew contacted dispatchers and explained that the emergency signal was spontaneous. Information about the hijacking has also been rejected by the Russian Emergencies Ministry and the duty officer of the Perm interior department. According to preliminary explanations, the incident was caused by technical problems. The An-24 plane has already landed in Perm.
