At least 41 dead in fiery Moscow jet landing

'The flames were huge': At least 41 dead in fiery Moscow jet landing caught on video
Quote
A Russian Aeroflot jet landed in Moscow engulfed in flames and billowing smoke Sunday, a deadly incident captured in a dramatic video.
At least 41 people died in the fiery wreck, including two children, Russia’s Investigative Committee announced.
Video shows the plane in flames as it roars down the runway. After it stops, some passengers leap onto inflatable slides and stumble away from the raging flames, some fleeing with luggage in tow.
The Sukhoi Superjet, which had 73 passengers and five crew members, requested an emergency landing, the Russian news agency Tass reported. Sukhoi said the hard landing may have ignited the fire.
A correspondent for the Russian news website RT was on a nearby plane and saw the landing.

At 0:24 the landing plane can be seen "leap-frogging" at low level before hitting the runway and catching fire. Reminds of the control problems recently affecting the Boeing 737 Max, although Aeroflot does not have the same anti-stall SW.

Apparently, several may have died because passengers just had to start grabbing their stuff from the overhead carry-on bins delaying escape from the fire!

As the shaken survivors of Sunday’s fiery Russian plane crash fled in fear from the burning wreckage of a Sukhoi Superjet-100, some of them could be clearly seen clinging on to their hand luggage.
And while it may seem like a natural reaction to cling on to your personal possessions in an emergency, aviation experts have warned the death toll — which has reached 41 — could have been significantly lower had passengers left the plane without their bags.
Unfortunately, what happened at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport overnight is just the latest incident in which lives have been lost by the disturbing trend among panicking passengers.

As you can see in the video, the fire started at the rear end of the plane, then spread forward so for the occupants of the rear section death was probably sudden, with little chance of worrying about hand baggage ::).

The front part of the plane was relatively unaffected, and the pilots probably survived. They will have to explain at the accident inquest why they did not shut off the fuel supply to the engines in the back, a safety precaution probably written in the procedures for emergency landings :(.
