Anyone know any further details? I believe it involves a Fokker and happened at a Moscow airport

Nothing on TASS, BBC or anywhere in Google - so hopefully nothing to this.

What was the source of your info..?

Cheers

Cheers Diesel. It's second hand from someone who's spoken to a Russian with an insurance interest.

I've no reason to doubt the info, not not too sure what the extent of the loss is.

Still nothing found on this except to say that it may have been a Falcon 20 rather than a Fokker

I just checked several Russian newspapers and online sites, and there is no mention of any plane crashes.

Just a long overdue update on this...

It turned out to be a Jet-2000, Falcon-20C which, during an internal flight, was forced land at Sheremetievo airport after losing power in both engines. On touching down the landing gear did not lock and retracted again leaving the fuselage to overun the runway. Thankfully no casualties were reported.
