A passenger plane burst into flames after overshooting the runway while trying to land in Russia.

The Boeing 737 jet, carrying 164 passengers and six crew, was attempting to land at Sochi Airport in severe weather conditions in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Skidding beyond the runway, the aircraft struck an airport fence and collapsed on its side, shortly before bursting into flames.

Both of the plane's wings were detached in the crash.
