Social media users have posted the horrific moment a plane on fire made an emergency landing.

At least 13 people on board a Russian Aeroflot passenger plane were killed on Monday when the plane caught fire mid-air and made an emergency landing at a Moscow airport, Russian news agencies reported.

Many passengers then escaped via the plane’s emergency slides that inflated after the hard landing. 

The cause of the fire was not immediately known.

The Flightradar24 tracking service showed that the plane had circled twice over Moscow before making an emergency landing after about 45 minutes.

The pilots somehow got it back to the ground.
