Wed Feb 13, 2013 6:25 pm

News coming in of a crash landing in Ukraine and three dead .

A passenger plane has crash-landed and caught fire near the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk, with reports of at least one death.

The plane, a medium-sized turboprop capable of carrying 48 passengers, was on an internal flight from Odessa to Donetsk, Russian media say.

Apparently its an AN-24.

Reports say that passengers were mostly soccer fans travelling to tonight's Champions Shakhtar Donetsk vs Borussia Dortmund.

I think there is quite heavy fog in the region. I saw on Flightradar24 3 aircraft circling over Rostov-On-Don between 16 and 18 UTC. All 3 diverted to Krasnodar.

That picture looks more like and ATR tail. Certainly not an AN-24.

Quoting LAXintl (Reply 4):

You are right, to me it looks like UTair Ukraine, they operate 10 Atrs.

If it really is UTair then it is really bad, as less than a year ago one of their Atrs crashed near Tyumen.

The airline involved seems to be South Airlines (not Southern). According to Wikipedia, they have one An-24 and some other smaller aircraft.

Plane was full of football supporters for the Champion's League match Shakhtar - Dortmund tonight.

Sad, really......

I feel like the A318 at times: I am probably worth more parted out than as a whole.
