This was the aircraft that was lost on 23rd March 1994 near Mezhduretshensk, Russia . It was flying from Moscow to Hong Kong with 75 souls on board when the captain allowed his son and daughter into the cockpit and sit at the controls. The son accidently disengaged the autopilot which sent the plane into a bank which the crew didn't notice. By the time the error was noticed, the plane had entered an unrecoverable spin and crashed [Fuji Velvia Slide]

Great photo Andrew! What a tragic story. So much for audible warnings. - G

I like the contrast: in the foreground modern plane (at the time it was taken) and in the background we can see poor neighborhood.
