The rear door of a Russian aircraft opened during flight.

A surprising case has come to light in Russia. Actually, during the flight here, an aircraft rear door opened. The opening of the plane's door in mid-flight created panic and the passengers held their breath. After this the aircraft was immediately landed back and the aircraft door was repaired and it was sent again. At the time of the incident, a total of 25 passengers including six crew members were on board the aircraft. 

According to media reports, an N-26 twin prop aircraft of the Russian airline IRERO was going from the Siberian city of Magadan to the Russian city of Magadan. After take-off, when the aircraft was at an altitude of about 2800-2900 metres, the rear door of the aircraft opened at the same time. Due to this, the luggage of the passengers kept in the plane also got scattered. The aircraft door opened due to a pressurization problem. After this, the aircraft was brought back to the city of Magan in Siberia and after removing the technical problem, the aircraft was sent again. 

Thankfully no one was injured in this incident. A passenger traveling in the plane made a video of the incident and uploaded it on social media. It is seen in the video that during the flight, the rear door of the aircraft is open and due to this, there is a situation of turmoil inside the aircraft. At the same time, Anton Graschenko, advisor to the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, has also taken a dig at this incident and targeted Russia by tweeting on social media.
