Russian Military Jet Crashes, Killing All 92 Aboard
They didn’t have a chance. A massive operation involving 3,500 people on boats, submersibles, jets and helicopters is working to recover wreckage and bodies after a Russian military plane crashed into the Black Sea Sunday, killing all 92 aboard. The Tu-154, which disappeared from radar minutes after refueling in Sochi, was bound for Syria carrying military personnel, reporters and the famed army choir Alexandrov Ensemble to entertain troops. Authorities have opened a criminal investigation into the crash as Russia observes a national day of mourning for the victims.
