Yesterday we reported that a plane crash which occurred in the outskirts of Moscow after taking off from the capital’s Domodedovo airport, reportedly had no survivor.
According to Russian news agencies The Antonov An-148 plane operated by the domestic Saratov Airlines was flying to Orsk, a city in the Urals, with 65 passengers and 6 crew members, but crashed in the Ramensky district outside Moscow.
Though it is not yet clear what had caused the plane crash which happened as temperatures hovered around minus 5 degrees Celsius with periodic snowfalls, however eye witnesses in the village of Argunovo saw a burning plane falling from the sky. Investigators said they had opened a criminal case into the incident, and are looking at all possibilities.
The plane, manufactured in 2010, was carrying 65 passengers and six crew. It disappeared from radar screens shortly after taking off from Moscow’s Domodedovo airport.
Elena Voronova, a spokeswoman for Saratov Airlines, said there had been no concerns about the technical condition of the plane, which had went into service with her company in 2016. Images broadcast on state TV showed relatives waiting at Orsk airport, some with their heads in their hands.
