Passengers on a Russian flight had to put up umbrellas after it started 'raining' on board.



Footage was shared online of holidaymakers popping up their brollies as water entered the cabin on a domestic flight between Khabarovsk and Sochi.

Discussing the strange incident, one passenger remarked: ''We were flying to the sun but the rain started falling on the plane.''

The video shows some travellers trying to stem the leaks with their fingers as others take shelter with the umbrellas.

According to reports, the downpour was caused by a malfunctioning air conditioning system on the flight.

The airline has now launched an investigation into the incident to uncover the reason for the wet flight.
