Counting the Russian Air Force An-26, I think this makes 5 this year, three of which were commercial flights.
In 2016, counting aircraft with 9 or more passengers on board, there were 6 crashes. In 2017, using the same parameters, there were 4. Air travel accident rates have been very low the last few years, so having this many this early in the year seems like a lot more.
