A Saratov AN 148 has crashed after take off. Witnesses have reported seeing it on fire mid air before it came down outside of a village. Early indications are everyone on board has died it was carrying 65 passengers and 6 crew. story
I think this will be the first airliner to have crashed in over a year?

I guess I will add ....I read about this right before getting on ATS.....

The An-148 regional jet disappeared from radar screens shortly after takeoff from Moscow's Domodedovo Airport on Sunday afternoon. News reports said 71 people — 65 passengers and six crew — were aboard the plane heading for the city of Orsk, about 1,500 kilometers (1,000 miles) southeast of Moscow.






Russian media said the jet belonged to Saratov Airlines.

The AN 148 seems to have been modelled on the British Aerospace 146 also seems to be the first of its kind to have crashed as well apart from a test model where the crew descended too quickly causing it to break apart.

Breaking up inflight with a fire does not sound like a normal engine failure.. I wonder if there was an explosive device ?

The plane was headed towards Orsk.


The town of Orsk is also close to Orenburg. The conventional boundary between Europe and Asia passes through it, so that its historic center is located in the Asian part of the continent, and the new construction is in the European part.

Symbolic message if it wasn't an accident?

Oh boy!

Article from ten days ago (Feb 1 2018):


Russia's Ministry of Defence (MoD) has just completed the construction of two radar facilities along with four storage centres which will hold Bulava missiles for their "Space Forces".

The radars are located at the Orsk in the Urals and in Barnaul in southwest Siberia, while the Bulava storage facilities are based in Severomorsk in northwest Russia, Tass reported.

That thought also crossed my mind when reading it especially after the Egyptian bombing the other year.

They ran into some kind of issue just after takeoff it looks like, going by the graph on FR24.

I'm going with structural failure caused by icing. Weather was -5C, with light snow at the time of departure.

The pilot reported a problem and was going to attempt to return.

They went into some oscillations after takeoff. They didn't seem too bad on the refined data, but there may have been an impact.

Rumors are appearing now that they had a midair with a helicopter just after takeoff.

Hmmm, unconfirmed report of what you mentioned about collision

" There were also unconfirmed reports that the plane collided with a helicopter from the Russian postal service, according to an Interfax source. "

The aircraft was stored from 2015 until February of 2017 due to lack of parts. Nothing else is being said about a collision, but they're looking at a possible engine explosion as one cause.

Is it possible the the engine didn't contain the explosion and caused damage to the fuselage do you think?

It's very possible. The Qantas A380 that suffered the uncontained failure suffered major damage to the wing when it failed.

If it was a uncontained failure and it showered the side of the fuselage I'm guessing the rapid depressurisation would rip the fuselage apart?

I'd be more concerned about the wing honestly. There have been many uncontained failures that went through the fuselage. Rapid decompression isn't as bad as it's made out to be. But if it caused damage to the wing, on a plane this size, the wing could have broken and they would have lost control, leading to a breakup.

You can suggest all you want, that doesn't make it true. Nor do your pictures of clouds that you keep posting. Planes crash, and have nothing to do with a mythical "Planet X".

The pilot reported a technical problem, according to unconfirmed reports, which would seem to indicate that there was not an impact with a helicopter.
