Novosibirsk (dpa) - Around 200 inmates of a Russian holiday jet with a burning engine got away with the horror in Novosibirsk. According to Russian media reports, holidaymakers who wanted to fly to Vietnam were already seated in the machine when one of the engines suddenly caught fire when the engines were started. The pilot activated the automatic extinguishing system, and the aircraft was immediately evacuated. A new machine should now be made available for the flight to Cam Ranh this Saturday.
