Sorry to post twice in like 20 mins but:

-Some sources are reporting an engine failure
-Some are reporting an engine fire
-A random russian site reported engine failure due to lightning strike (?)
-Apparently they went around once before the accident.

well, you can also have a very hard landing that's followed by landing gear collapse, resulting in fuel tank or fuel lines being ruptured, fuel leaking out and being ignited by sparks or engines heat

Earlier I've posted a quote I found on twitter that said "electrical system failure". Don't know how trustworthy is the person though.


Yeah there's so much conflicting information. Also It could be a hard landing but I guess I'm not sure it could cause such a large blaze.

There's a livestream on YouTube that seems to be updating quickly regarding all the different stories emerging (tho I'm not sure how accurate it is) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Chagz9dzXH8

Maybe the main gear collapsed as the structure was weakened by the fire?

In the videos available above both the engines are clearly visible and fire is at a distance from both. Do these sources mean the APU?

That YouTube guy seems so stupid. Like live streaming gaming is pretty common but live streaming Twitter scrolling is surely something new

There should absolutely be either legal or criminal repercussions to those who take their bags with them during an emergency evacuation. Absolutely selfish.

Russian resources report that it lost contact with ATC soon after takeoff and was landing without any guidance or communication.

This belgium site said "Initial reports suggest that the fire originated from electrical equipment on board."?


News agency TASS is reporting that the crew confirmed that their aircraft was hit by a lightning strike.

Reports of one female crew member killed whilst helping passengers.

10 reported injuries.

https://mol.im/a/6995039

Shocking. Brings back some memories of the British Airtours 737 that aborted it's landing, turning into the wind with the flames and smoke blown onto the aircraft. Totally different set of circumstances however.

Thank goodness they were able to evacuate quickly.

It is reported that after landing passengers starting running in random directions, and some of them are still not located.

There were also reports that there was no communication between the aircraft and the ground. They have limited means to alert SVO services therefore.

Almost looks like the ground around the aircraft was on fire in one of the photos I saw. What an eerie sight. Wow.

Prayers to the family of the victim. It seems like the news outlets reporting 11 casualties meant 1 casualty and 10 injured, or at least I hope. We will see.

EDIT: Looks like 13 fatalities now. Absolutely horrible.

Terrible accident. RIP those who have died.

So, lightning results in electrical failure and/or fire while climbing. Landing ASAP results in collapsed main gear AND fire if not already started. So the question is, when did the fire start?

EDIT: avherald says "During the roll out the aircraft burst into flames"

It happens all the time these days, passenger behaviour is out of the airlines' control.

Recent examples of fire evacuations;

British Airways 2276
American 383
Asiana 214

All were spotted with at least some passengers wandering around with wheelie bags, duty free etc.

Last fatal crash was probably over 20 years ago, last hull loss was 5 years ago.

The last fatal crash was in 1994:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aeroflot_Flight_593

The flight 821 was operated not by Aeroflot itself but rather by Aeroflot Nord

The last hull loss was with TU 154 in 2008. It was departing LED and suffered an engine fire. There were no fatalities.

The hull loss in 2014 was of already decommissioned aircraft.

It might be that the engines were uncontrollable at that point of time, i.e. the crew couldn’t switch them off. Lot of contradicting rumors at the moment, difficult to infer the sequence of the events.

I find it hard to believe, that FlightRadar24 picked up the emergency squawk, and the airport authorities did not... apparently they did nothing though... even if ATC communication was lost.

If people aren't smart enough to realiase this isn't the airline's fault and it happens at almost every similar incident then they're never gonna learn.

But for the record this happened on EK521, AA383, BA2276, OZ214 etc

It has been just hours after the crash. It's time for all these conspiracy theories, speculations, etc. Let's wait and see until they publish the list of alive and passed pax, and at least preliminary results of investigation.

CNN now reporting 13 fatalities. I know it's early, but I think this is a Concorde-like disaster. I think there was an un-contained engine failure that punctured the fuel tank (note the fuel fire spreading forward from inertia at the point of the full stop in CNN video). This is indicative of fuel gushing from the wing, around the engine casing. RIP and condolences to families and friends of those that perished.

Seems unlikely. All video released so far show the aircraft on fire, main gear collapsed or not extended, before it came to a stop, not before touchdown.
As other posters already stated if they had an uncontrolled onboard fire they would land immediately, while it seems they instead executed a missed approach before eventually landing.
Personally think the fire was the consequence of hard or gear-up landing damage, possibly related to the initial emergency that prompted the return.
If God had wanted men to fly he would have given them more money...

In all fairness to the passengers on OZ 214, I really don't think too many of them would've comprehended what had just happened to be thinking rationally when the evacuation order was finally given.

Recent examples of fire evacuations;

British Airways 2276
American 383
Asiana 214

All were spotted with at least some passengers wandering around with wheelie bags, duty free etc.

Looking at one video of the initial minute of the evacuation, most passengers slide out in a 1 second interval but occasionally there's one that needs 3-4 seconds. That time seems like an eternity while watching the video. I'm sure it feels even longer if there's a major fire right behind you. Those particular passengers appear to have brought large carry-on luggage while the others did not (or only wallet ~ handbag sized pieces).

If there is any chance that some victims would have survived if the evacuation had gone faster, those individuals should be accused of manslaughter. They disobeyed a direct order from the crew. Grabbing a small bag in front of you is a subconcious decision and excusable. Getting something from the overhead bins is not.

look at the pics after the fire was extinguished. Wings and engines look to have sustained no damage at all. The fire almost magically stopped just before Wings

They knew something was wrong with the a/c coming in and there were no fire trucks waiting at the runway. That worries me more than anything else about Russian airport / aviation safety...

According to AP, it landed on fire. There's a picture at the link: https://hosted.ap.org/article/3e3f98840 ... s-reported

There's a video in post 3 or 4 that shows this... this is just a screenshot of the video.

...Personally think the fire was the consequence of hard or gear-up landing damage, possibly related to the initial emergency that prompted the return.

Agree. avherald said "During the roll out the aircraft burst into flames".

Not trying to jump the gun here, but wasn't there a thread days ago about how the Superfan's combustion chambers were a bit problematic?

I really hope that the reports were false and no one lost their live here! :(

I don't think AvHerald is any more likely than anyone else to know actually what happened. They correct their descriptions all the time as new, more-correct, info is published in the media sources from which they get their information.
