05/05/2019 Russian Aeroflot plane crashes

The Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft was struck by lightning. The radio and other equipment failed and the flight crew chose to make an emergency landing at Sheremetyevo. Flight 1492 bounced on landing and touched down hard, causing the undercarriage to collapse and a fire to erupt, which quickly engulfed the rear of the aircraft. 41 occupants died.
