We’ve since processed additional granular data from Aeroflot flight 1492 including the landing. Our systems initially noted erroneous data contributed by a single receiver, leading to the last moments of the flight not being displayed on the website. Other receivers in the area captured that data and it is available for download below.

Note: ADS-B reports the uncorrected pressure altitude value. Moscow-Sheremetyevo Airport is located at 630 ft AMSL.
