    Background: Visnews filmed the
    arrival at Kastrup Airport Jan 22 of Anastas Mikoyan, Deputy Russian Prime
    Minister, on his way home from the United States. Film includes an interview of
    two passengers who were in Mikoyan's aircraft when it caught fire after leaving
    New York Jan 20.

    M. Mikoyan, reaching Copenhagen a day late because of the mishap, climbed out of
    the Scandinavian airliner which had brought him from Newfoundland, waves his hat
    high in the air, then found himself in the middle of a fast-moving scrum of
    newsmen.

    He looked tired, shook off reporter's questions by the speed of his pace and
    ducked into a waiting car for the Russian Embassy.

    A woman passenger interviewed (S.O.F.) said M. Mikoyan was in a private
    compartment on the aircraft. She said it was fortunate the two crippled engines
    were not on the same wing.

    Another woman passenger who was on the stricken four-engine plane out of New
    York said Mikoyan had said at the Argentina US naval base: "I am an old man and
    ready to die but I felt sorry for the children on the plane." M. Mikoyan was due
    to address a meeting arranged by the Danish-Soviet Friendship Association later
    tonight. (Jan 22)
