Dramatic footage shared on social media showed the Russian Aeroflot-owned aircraft, flames and black smoke pouring from its fuselage, land at Sheremetyevo worldwide airport. It said passengers were able to exit the aircraft via the emergency exits. RIA agency said that there were 78 passengers on the plane, which had been headed from Moscow to the northern Russian city of Murmansk.
The Flightradar24 tracking service showed that the plane had circled twice over Moscow before making an emergency landing after about 45 minutes.
AV said that Russian News Agencies claim the aircraft received a lightning strike causing a total electrical failure and subsequent return and a hard landing.
Passengers appeared to be carrying luggage as they fled a Russian plane that had made an emergency landing. The first video shows flames and black smoke billowing from the plane but does not indicate what caused the plane to catch fire or how long it had been burning.
It returned to the airport for what reports described as a hard landing on runway 24L at 18:31 local time.

Buffett also maintained that "we paid too much" for Kraft Heinz, which was created in a 2015 merger between Kraft Foods and H.J. Berkshire Hathaway's CEO calls himself an "idiot" for not buying shares of the online retailer in the past.

Voters went to the polls in mainly rural and suburban areas of England, with more than 8,000 seats up for grabs. Mrs May told the Welsh Conservatives conference in Llangollen that the results were "very hard for our party".
The crash-landing on Sunday is the latest serious setback for the plane, the first new passenger jet developed in Russian Federation since the fall of the Soviet Union, and threatens to undermine confidence in an airliner Moscow touts as proof it can produce its own high quality civil passenger aircraft.
