MOSCOW, September 7 (Itar-Tass) - A Challenger plane with ten people aboard belly-landed at Moscow’s Vnukovo Airport, its official told ITAR-TASS on Saturday, September 7.
“The plane was flying from Naples to Moscow and belly-landed at Vnukovo-3 Airport at 21:12,” transport police said, adding that there were three crewmembers and seven passengers aboard. No fire occurred and no one was injured.
“The passengers and the crew were evacuated after the landing. They were taken to the Vnukovo-3 Terminal,” police said.
The runway on which the plane landed is temporary closed to other aircraft “for an hour or an hour and a half until the plane is removed.”
An airport official told ITAR-TASS that the runway had been covered with special fire extinguishing foam before the emergency landing to prevent a fire aboard the plane.
The plane belongs to Turkish Airlines.
