MOSCOW
A Russian passenger jet with 170 people aboard disappeared from radar screens after sending a SOS message Tuesday and probably crashed, an emergency official said. The plane, on its way from the Black Sea resort of Anapa to St. Petersburg, disappeared from radar screens over Ukraine, Emergency Situations Ministry spokeswoman Yulia Stadnikova said.

True, don't start saying thinggs like that unless you know. Everytime a Russian jet crashes, some people are quick to say:"Its because it was old..."

It was claimed by ABC7 of the San Francisco Bay Area. They said (not me) it crashed probably due to the jet aging.

I sincerely hope that everyone walks away from this crash, although I somehow doubt it.

Ridiculous. It's impossible to conclude such a thing at such an early stage.

There's only been 3 major crashes involving Russian airliners and only this one is fatal AFAIK. The Il-62 that crashed in April or May and the Russian AF Tu-134 were both without fatalities. I love how the American media always assumes the reason a Russian plane crashes is because it is old or something related.

Only reliable information so far:

Obviously, a fire broke out onboard. Reason unknown.
Crew tried to initiate an emergency landing, but was unable to lower the gear.
Landing failed, plane crashed and burned out.

No information where exactly they tried to land on.

They also should be more careful as the Tu-154 is Soviet-made, not Russian-made.

From http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/5274958.stm

Quote:
A Russian passenger plane carrying 170 people has crashed in eastern Ukraine.

Thirty bodies have been found at the crash site, about 45km (30 miles) north of Donetsk, a Russian official said.

The Tupolev-154 was flying from southern Russia to St Petersburg when it disappeared from radar screens following a distress signal.

The airliner was in flames on the ground, Ukraine's emergencies ministry said. Rescue workers were heading to the scene.

The crew sent a distress signal at 1537 Moscow time (1137 GMT), and the plane disappeared from radar screens at 1539 (1130 GMT), Irina Andrianova of Russia's Emergencies Ministry told Itar-Tass news agency.

The plane belongs to Pulkovo airlines, she said.

Ukrainian ministry spokesman Igor Krol said rescue teams had located the wreckage of the plane, Interfax news agency reported.

The plane had 160 passengers and 10 crew on board, and was travelling from the Black Sea resort of Anapa, emergency officials said.

Russian media reports said President Vladimir Putin had been informed of the crash.

The crash comes less than two months after at least 124 people died when a Russian Airbus A-310 skidded off a runway and burst into flames in the city of Irkutsk in Siberia.

I flew a Pulkovo TU-154 with my family from st petersburg to moscow and back JUST LAST WEEK. it was my first trip on a russian airliner. Before the flights I contemplated my whole family dying on the planes. I thought after we landed the second time how silly It was for me to think that there was any statistical chance of us actually crashing, but now i'm scared because it was more likely than I thought. I am curious to find out the tail number to see if it matches.
