Default Re: Russian plane crash outside Moscow leaves 71 dead

Surveillance footage captures moment Russian plane crashed, killing 71

A deadly plane crash in Russia Sunday that left 71 people dead was captured on surveillance footage which appeared to show the moment the An-148 crashed in a ball of fire just minutes after it took off.

From a distance, the security video showed the moment the plane plunged into a field nearly 25 miles out from Domodedovo Airport, where it had taken off from only moments before.

The Antonov An-148 regional jet disappeared from radar about 12 miles southeast of the airport, according to flight-tracking website Flightradar24. A plane can disappear from radar when it gets too close to the ground to reflect radar signals.

Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov confirmed that none of the 65 passengers ages 5 to 79 or six crew members survived.

It was not immediately clear what caused the plane to crash, but weather conditions and pilot error were said to be among the possible reasons.
