MOSCOW – At least 13 people were killed when a Russian airliner caught on fire and was forced to make a hard emergency landing at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport on Sunday, according to reports.

Russia’s Investigative Committee said two children were among the dead but did not immediately provide further details. At least six people were reported hurt, Fox News reports.

Aeroflot flight SU1492, a Sukhoi SSJ-100 regional jet, had taken off for the northern city of Murmansk before it was forced to turn around with 73 passengers and five crew members on board, airport officials said.

Videos and pictures on Twitter show the flaming plane landing at the airport and passengers evacuating the plane on emergency slides.

Take a look:

This is the second deadly incident involving the plane. In 2012, a demonstration flight in Indonesia struck a mountain, killing all 45 aboard.

God Bless.
