    FYI: there is no mechanical backup on the SSJ. The FBW is extremely robust as a result.

    There are some people in Moscow feeling extremely lucky to be alive right now. Probably not those who were seated in the back. I expect that death toll will rise.

    Looks like a very hard landing pushed the gear struts through the fuel tanks. Fuse pins aren't much good for extreme vertical loads.

    There's a report that they lost electrical power and FBW reverted to direct (minimum) law. There was also a report of a lightning strike.

    That doesn't fully explain the hard landing though.

    A video shows no smoke and no fire from the aircraft prior to touchdown.
