They're saying 71 died. Not many details yet...

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2018/02/11 ... s-say.html

The plane was an An-148, a regional jet belonging to Saratov Airlines, that had taken off from Domodedovo Airport with 71 people aboard and was headed to Orsk,

The flight took off from Moscow's Domodedovo Airport and spent about 5 minutes in the air before a signal was lost about 12 miles southeast of the airport, according to Flightradar24, a fight-tracking website.

71 people now confirmed dead. Looks like it lost height on the climb-out for some reason.

Aircraft is confirmed as Saratov An-148 RA-61704. Entered service June 2010, transferred from Rossiya in Feb 2017.

This is the frame (in earlier days with Rossiya):

A million great ideas...

"I left the house, saw the plane, an explosion was heard and the sky turned red," the unnamed woman told the television station.


A crash on climbout, just after leaving the airport. Sounds awfully familiar, aft CG maybe?

This is a Signature Line. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

Get your tin foil hats boys & girls:

Passengers Killed on Crashed Russian Plane Include CFO of Rosatom/UraniumOne and Russian Source for Christopher Steele's "Dossier" against Trump
And let's get one thing straight. There's a big difference between a pilot and an aviator. One is a technician; the other is an artist in love with flight. — E. B. Jeppesen

Breaking on BBC News at the moment:

Speed sensors that were iced over may have caused a passenger jet to crash near Moscow, killing all 71 people on board, investigators say.

Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast:
For it is the number of a man; and its number is One hundred threescore and twelve.

Frozen pitot tube(s) again? Seems to be the major cause of crashes of late.

When you're in the depths of Russian winter and you don't even turn their heaters on, they tend to do that {facepalm} From AvHerald:

In the afternoon of Feb 13th 2018 the MAK reported, that decoding of the FDR data has been completed. Preliminary analysis shows, that the pitot heatings for all three pitot probes were off while the pitot heatings had been turned on prior to departure on the previous 15 flights.
