Superjet liner in emergency landing

The crew of a Superjet-100 airliner of the Russian company Aeroflot has aborted a flight to Astrakhan and returned the plane to Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport after discovering problems with their plane’s landing gear.

The touchdown was flawless, all 65 passengers and 4 crew on the flight are safe and well. The homing operation involved hours of circling to burn off the fuel.
