With a hard landing, he broke down the racks and the engines caught fire. Then the fire spread to the entire tail of the aircraft.

The acting governor of the Murmansk region, Andrei Chibis, declared three-day mourning in the region. Families of the dead residents of the region will receive a million rubles each, the number of the dead - 500 thousand each. After the tragedy, the UK opened a criminal case, and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev ordered the creation of a state commission to investigate the incident. Rostransnadzor, in turn, will unscheduledly check Aeroflot, Sheremetyevo and the State Corporation for Air Traffic Management.
