Today is May 5th, the day celebrated in Mexico as Cinco de Mayo, a relatively minor festival in which Mexicans celebrate their victory over the French Empire in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. It is currently celebrated more in the US than in Mexico. The real irony is that the majority of Americans running around in sombreros and chugging margaritas and Dos Equis today are Republicans who demand we "build that wall".

Even here in Tejas a lotta people think it’s “Mexican Independence Day”

Holy smack. A few hours ago, a Sukhoj Superjet 100 passenger airplane which had just taken off from the airport in Moscow declared an emergency and returned to the airport. Videos of the landing show the plane engulfed in flames:



There are conflicting reports on whether or not the jet was already on fire before it reached the runway. There's also reportedly some injuries and fatalities from this incident. :(

Holy smack. A few hours ago, a Sukhoj Superjet 100 passenger airplane which had just taken off from the airport in Moscow declared an emergency and returned to the airport.
More details:


An Aeroflot Sukhoi Superjet 100-95, registration RA-89098 performing flight SU-1492 from Moscow Sheremetyevo to Murmansk (Russia) with 73 passengers and 5 crew, departed Sheremetyevo's runway 24C at 18:04L (15:04Z) but stopped the climb at about FL100, declared loss of radio communication first, later emergency via transponder codes and returned to Sherementyevo for a landing on runway 24L at 18:31L (15:31Z). During the roll out the aircraft burst into flames, veered left off the runway and came to a stop on the grass adjacent to the runway, the aircraft burned down. 13 occupants perished in the accident, 28 occupants are still missing, 35 occupants were able to evacuate the aircraft via both front door emergency slides, the flight crew escaped via the escape ropes through the cockpit windows, it is unknown how many injuries occurred. The aircraft's tail section completely burned down and was destroyed.

Emergency services reported the fire was extinguished about 45 minutes after landing. According to preliminary information there were 10 fatalities. Emergency services later updated the count to 13 fatalities, 6 injuries and a still undetermined number of missing occupants.
(FL100 = flight level 10,000')
