A Boeing 777 operated by Rossiya Airlines made an emergency landing in Moscow at 4:44 a.m. local time due to engine trouble, less than a week after a similar aircraft flown by United Airlines suffered a dramatic blowout over Denver, shedding debris onto neighborhoods below.
The Rossiya Air flight was operating as a cargo service from Hong Kong to Madrid, according to an employee at Sheremetyevo International Airport.
The crew reported the left engine control channels failed.
