Based on the footage published on the Web, it can be assumed that we are talking about a Sukhoi Superjet 100 domestic production liner. The plane is engulfed in flames almost completely. The machine cannot be restored.
According to emergency services, the flame was able to bring down. In the next few minutes, the fire will be completely eliminated.

According to the agency TASS, a fire occurred in the engine of the aircraft. The liner could not land the first time. The second attempt to land led to a tough meeting with the ground, because of which the plane literally “pecked its nose” and caught fire.
Preliminary causes of an emergency are a malfunction of electronic equipment and lightning striking an airplane. The second, by the way, is in great doubt. The last plane crash that occurred due to the lightning caused more than 60 years ago. It is believed that getting into the liner of a powerful electric charge does not pose a threat to it.
