Dramatic new pictures have emerged of the moment a Russian passenger plane was forced to make an emergency landing on water in Eastern Siberia. The Antonov-24, which was carrying 36 people, can clearly be seen with one of its engines on fire. The pilot had reported difficulties and decided to attempt the landing on the River Ob on Monday. While the plane stayed afloat allowing the majority of the passengers to escape, seven people died. Two of the survivors remain in a serious condition in hospital.
