MOSCOW, May 18 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow's Vnukovo airport has resumed working after the Boeing incident, a Rosaviation source told Itar-Tass.
The airliner is removed from the runway. The airport is open, the source said.
During the time when the airport was closed, seven planes that were on flights to Vnukovo landed at other airports.
When the UTair passenger Boeing-737 from Stavropol landed here at 07:48 Moscow time, wheels of one of its landing gear units broke with a subsequent fire. Firefighters promptly extinguished the blaze.
Nobody was hurt in the incident.
A special commission of the Rosaviation federal air transport agency is formed to investigate the case.
A source of the UTair airline told Itar-Tass that 129 people were aboard the Boeing.
