'Loving you': Hero Russian air steward's tragic last message to his girlfriend moments before crash-landing which killed him and 40 others in runway fireball Moments before the crash at Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport, Maxim Moiseev (pictured) tried to reassure his girlfriend, Ksenia Obraztsova, that 'all is okay with me'. But she was not convinced, feeling perturbed by the fact he had a phone connection during a flight and searching desperately for information. As the plane went down at Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport he sent his love and did not see her final reply. The latest revelation comes as Russian investigators consider pilot error as a possible cause of the Superjet inferno, in which Moiseev and 40 others died.

The pilot of a Russian passenger plane said on Monday lightning forced him into making an emergency landing that caused the aircraft to erupt in a ball of fire on the runway of Moscow's busiest airport, killing 41 people.

Investigators were attempting to understand the cause of the blaze, which saw the Sukhoi Superjet-100 skid at high speed on the tarmac at Sheremetyevo airport as flames poured from its fuselage on Sunday.

Pilot Denis Yevdokimov told Russian media the airliner lost communication and needed to switch to emergency control mode and return to the airport "because of lightning" during the Aeroflot flight, which was headed for the Arctic city of Murmansk.

Yevdokimov did not specify if the plane was struck by lightning directly, but storms were passing through the Moscow area when the plane made its emergency landing.

"We managed to restore communication through the emergency frequency on our radio connection. But the link was only for a short time and kept cutting out... It was possible to say only a few words," he told the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper.

Black boxes found

Video on social media showed the plane crash-landing and people leaping onto an inflatable slide at the front and then running from the blazing jet as columns of black smoke billowed into the sky.

Another video shot inside the cabin showed roaring flames outside the window and passengers crying out in panic.

Yevdokimov said he believed the plane, which had 78 people on board, burst into flames on landing, most likely because of full fuel tanks.

Aside from the dead, nine people were in hospital, three seriously injured, authorities said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin offered his condolences and said the investigation into the disaster "should be as thorough as possible".

The aircraft's black boxes were found and handed over to investigators, a source in the Russian emergency services told news agencies.

Transport Minister Yevgeny Dietrich said there were no plans to ground the Superjet-100 model.

Russia's national carrier Aeroflot was once notorious for a poor safety record but in recent years its image has improved and it has not had a fatal accident in more than a decade.

The Russian Sukhoi Superjet-100, however, has been dogged by problems since its launch in 2011.

Jetstar plane carrying as many as 180 passengers in terrifying near-miss with a lightaircraft.
The Jetstar Airbus A320-232 was on approach to Sunshine Coast Airport and pulled up when the pilot saw the twin-engine Beechcraft Aviation Australia was on the runway. A witness said the two planes were only about 30 seconds apart and the near-miss would have been a very serious accident. The Jetstar plane had its landing gear down and had to pull up and go around for another pass to avoid hitting the small twin-engined plane. 'This was very close to a major accident. Someone stuffed up major,' licenced pilot Graeme Shelley who saw the near-miss told the Sunshine Coast Daily.
