One person was killed and five were injured after a plane that had caught fire made an emergency landing at a major Moscow airport Sunday evening, according to Reuters.
After the Sukhoi Superjet-100 took off from Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport, a small fire on board forced the plane to make an emergency landing. After the jet landed, it erupted into flames and black smoke.
The plane's 78 passengers were then evacuated and five injuries have been reported so far. The flight was being operated by Aeroflot, Russia's largest airline.
