Terrified passengers used bottles of water to douse a fire that broke out on a crowded plane when a portable power unit suddenly “exploded”.

Footage captured on board the Russian aircraft shows flames and smoke engulfing a section of the economy class cabin.

Passengers shout at others to pass them water in a desperate bid to put out the blaze.

Amid the panic a crew member uses a fire extinguisher to snuff out the fire on board the Airbus A320.

Travellers reportedly used emergency slides as the Aeroflot plane was evacuated on the tarmac at Volgograd's airport.
