Yesterday on Friday 13th Nov, Antonov  AN-124 suffered an uncontained engine failure shortly after take off from Novosibirsk in Russia and return to make an emergency  landing. After landing  the aircraft overruns the runway, causing the nose gear snap. All the people and crew onboard are said to be safe.

Incident details-

The AN-124 registered as RA-82042, was on it's way to Vienna from Seoul. Having made an overnight positioning stop in Novosibirsk, the aircraft was ready and prepared  to depart from Veinna, completing the second leg of flight VI4066. 

The aircraft departed on Novosibirsk from Runway 25 and begins it's Ascent. At around 1800 feet from MSL, All contact with the aircraft was lost, both transponder as well as radio communication system failed.

Aircraft struggle to slow down, and overshoots the end of the runway by some safety measures.

As the plane plowed into the way, the nosegear snapped into the snow, leaving it's nose down on the ground.

According to the pilot-

The second engine exploded and cut electrical supply, so we lost all of the electricity and we decided to return Aerodrome of departure on an aircraft having a total electrical failure. And We lost all of the radio communication both inter cockpit and Also with ATC. We are just gained altitude of 1000ft and we are crew of 6 and other technical crew of 8 . We took a decision to return to Aerodrome of departure visually, we try to establish visual communication with the ATC but it didn't work. We took a decision to land on Runway 25 since it's a critical situations. We didn't have a lot of Altitude and excess thrust. 

Their was complete electrical failure breaks didn't works and reverse thrust didn't work either since the supply were cut due the engine failure.

The landing was soft, there was no damage during touch down all of the damage was due to the Runway excursion. The gauges in the cockpit didn't work, from the Angle of attack we figure out the speed was 150 knots, It was calculated Air speed. We haven't even a raised the flaps just raised the gear. We still have control over the aircraft. And we manage to land the aircraft properly.

Video footage of the aircraft shows it making a turn back to the airport with smoke trailing from at least one engine.
