WATCH: Crashed aircraft site found, all 71 on board dead

71 persons lost their lives when a Russian aircraft crashed in Russia. The dead included six crew members. Saratov Airlines An-148 crashed after disappearing from radar screens.

The aircraft had taken off from Moscow Airport, and was en route to Orsk. It appears that just two minutes after take-off, at about 11.15 a.m., the aircraft disappeared from radar screens.

Pieces of the crashed aircraft have been found near Argunovo, some 80 km from Southeast Moscow.

The cause of the accident has not yet been confirmed, but Russian authorities are not excluding weather conditions and even pilot error.
