This is a tragic incident. 12 lives lost. My deepest sympathy and respect to their families. Also a beautiful, rare aircraft destroyed. According to planes.cz the Russian defence ministry has temporarily grounded all AN-22 and TU-95 (same engines) aircraft. There is only a handful of these monsters flying nowadays - I'm only aware of one for Antonov Airlines and a few for the Russian Airforce.

As for the doomed plane, according to aviaport.ru, it had been delivered in 1974, but they said something along the lines of that it has only been utilised for 10 months which I don't really understand - mis-translation perhaps. I haven't been able to track down the reg.

I hope that this incident does not put the last nail in the coffin of this remarkable, unusual, world beating machine.

Indeed, this is a very tragic moment in aviation! I remember, seeing landing this beast at AMS a coupel of years ago! Damn, what a great, exceptional aircraft! Loved the sound of the engines!!! Well, i think that it is (like many Russian aircrafts) a very reliable plane so let's wait the outcome of the investigation! RIP and my condoleances for relatives and friends of the crew perished in this tragic accident.

The aircraft involved in this crash was indeed delivered in 1974, but it was stored for some time, so likely it re-entered service 10 months ago.

The one that crashed is not the particular aircraft that visited AMS. The Russian Airforce has several other examples active.

Wow, that really is too bad!  

Very sorry to hear about the crew, but also as a huge aviaton fan, it stings when such rare planes go down.
