    Airliner Crash Kills 71 Near Moscow

    “No one has survived this crash.” That’s what Russia’s transportation minister said of the crash of a Saratov Airlines An-148, carrying 65 passengers and six crew, heading from Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport to Orsk near the Kazakhstan border. After disappearing from radar shortly after takeoff, it fell about 25 miles from the airport, near the town of Argunovo, where authorities found wreckage and bodies while witnesses reported seeing the aircraft descending on fire. It’s unclear what brought the jet down, but a flight recorder has been recovered to aid aviation authorities’ investigation.
