Would never ever fly with that airline...and if  for any reason I bought a ticket and landed up flying with them without knowing it, I would cancel the trip..

No way would I ever with them...

Who was the airline? I read the link from RT and no mention.

Thankfully everyone onboard got off safely, only minor injuries.

Utair, flew with them once, was not impressed, never again, will stick with Aeroflot..

Thankfully everyone was safe, except the poor grounds man who suffered a heart attack whilst assisting in the rescue.. RIP

The runway was apparently closed for about 5 hours in order to allow the "Mess" to be cleaned up before being re-opened..

Please check the video I enclosed in my link ... hence my expressing surprise.

For sure the runway is clear - the perspective ' shocks'
