Russian airliner lands engulfed in flames.

An Aeroflot plane with 78 people aboard landed in flames at Moscow’s Sheremetevo Airport during a storm, killing at least one person, according to Russian media.

At least 10 other people were injured on Sunday when Flight SU1492, a Sukhoi Superjet, turned back and made an emergency landing after taking off for the northern city of Murmansk, the Interfax news agency said.

The plane took off from Moscow at about 6 p.m., circled the capital region a few times and landed again about 40 minutes later, the Vedomosti newspaper said. It was carrying 73 passengers and five crew, Russian news agencies said.
