Just listened to the news at the radio and they said that a Russian airliner, a Tupolev, but I couldn't here what model, had crashed during a domestic flight in Russia. The crash site was to be found outside Irkutsk. The sources is said to be Interfax and TT, Russian and Swedish news agencys respectively.
The plane carried 159 pax and 10 crew members, and all are said to be killed.
It's sad for they russian aviation industry, they don't need crashes if they want to compete with the western comanys.
Can anyone confirm this and bring some more info?
Just like birdwatching - without having to be so damned quiet!
