Four Dead in Plane's Crash in Moscow (video)

On Saturday, December 29, a Russian Tupolev Tu-204 medium-haul airliner overshot the runway while landing at Moscow’s Vnukovo airport, stopping on the nearby Kievskoe highway.

      The crash-landing of the TU-204, run by Russian firm Red Wings, was reported to rescuers at 16:37 Moscow time. The plane crashed into a runway at Vnukovo airport upon decent, then skidded off the runway. It rolled out onto Moscow’s Kievskoye Highway abutting the airport and broke into three during the crash with the right wing ablaze, firefighters took 30 minutes to extinguish the flames.

      There were eight people on board the plane, all of whom were crewmembers, flying from the Czech Republic. Four people, including both pilots, were killed and the other four were taken to Moscow hospitals with serious injuries.

      Vnukovo airport was closed with all incoming planes diverted to Sheremetyevo. The flight operations were resumed at 6:35 p.m., an airport spokesman said.

      The Moscow city transport prosecutor's office has launched a probe into the airline's compliance with Russian aviation safety regulations. The preliminary cause of the crash is pilot's error.
