Post by Doc67 » Mon May 06, 2019 9:55 am

An Aeorflot plane made an emergency landing while fully ablaze. The video is quite something...

That's incredible video, incredible piloting to land a ball of flames & shockingly incredible lack of fire trucks long after the plane is stationary and passengers evacuating from the front slide.

Aeroflot has to be right up there with Air France as far as flight safety records go; I wouldn't fly either.

According to witnesses the plane only caught fire after touching down (too hard, it seems it's sliding on its' engines), so it probably was structurally intact when it touched down.

Wonder how many people didn't make it outside because some fuckers were making videos or trying to take there handluggage with them.

Reports indicated the plane was fully evacuated in 55 seconds.

You may not be far off.

Here's some video from inside the inferno:

"2 Views from inside of the Russian plane that was on fire.
I read that people stopped to grab their carry-ons before exiting the plane, which contributed to the deaths."

Not long for only 37 people to escape but although they show people getting carry on out I would not think anyone would carmly wait and get fried. Maybe people had backpacks under the seat in front or ladies had big handbags
