Two planes have been confirmed to have crashed early today in Russia at almost the same time. The two planes have been confirmed to have crashed within three minutes of each other. They both originated from the same airport. CNN has reported that the second plane disappeared over a popular resort area where Putin is believed to be vacationing at this time. A Russian security source has stated the first plane transmitted that a hijacking was underway just prior to crashing.

A Russian airliner crashed south of Moscow, and another passenger jet went missing about the same time after both took off from Moscow, the ITAR-Tass news agency reported Tuesday. There was no word on survivors.

Authorities were not ruling out terrorism, the agency said.

A Tu-134 airliner that apparently had 42 people aboard crashed in the Tula region, 125 miles south of Moscow, at about 10:56 p.m. Monday, ITAR-Tass reported, citing the Emergency Situations Ministry.

A Tu-154 with 44 people aboard went missing about the same time near Rostov-on-Don, about 600 miles south of Moscow, but authorities had not found the wreckage, ITAR-Tass said.

Earlier, however, the agency said emergency officials reported that the second plane crashed about three minutes after the first one.

Quoting an unnamed air traffic official in Moscow, where both planes originated, ITAR-Tass said authorities were not ruling out terrorism. The agency also reported that witnesses said they saw an explosion before the Tula region crash.

Witnesses state an explosion took place in mid-air on the first plane to crash, which carried 34 passengers and 8 crew members. The second plane was carrying 44 passengers and 8 crew members.

Reports are now coming in that a fire has been spotted in the general vicinity of the disappearance of the second plane.

Putin has ordered the FSB investigate the crashes.

Meanwhile a third plane was forced to make an emergency landing in the Sakhalin Islands when one of its four engines went out. There were 254 passengers on board with 18 crew members.

Before everyone gets their panties in a bunch, dont ignore the fact that none of the reports have yet stated what type of weather they are experienceing in the area. And if the planes suddenly disappeared from radar, that doesn't necessarily they were hijacked.

My guess is they crashed because of weather, or something of the sort.

This is what the BBC NEWS have got so far on this story I dont think there is anything suspicious about it could be just bad luck well at least I hope it is and not terrorist related.


BBC NEWS
A plane with 62 people on board has crashed in the Tula region in the centre of the country.

The Itar-Tass news agency reports that the plane went down near the village of Buchalki, about 180km (110miles) south of the capital, Moscow.

Meanwhile air controllers said they had lost contact with a second plane with 44 passengers on board, near the southern city of Rostov-on-Don.

I'll speculate that they crashed because of the poor maintenance. Russia is running on the old Soviet infrastructure and hardware, and there are limits to this.

When EVERYTHING breaks down, there will be time for a change in this country, which I'm looking forward to.

Well there was a bomb attack in Moscow earlier today, although it could be just some gangland sh*t..

although that is usually around a business, like a McDonalds or something..
this was just a bus stop...

I wouldnt rule out a new wave of Chechen terrorism...

Foxnews just confirmed both plans crashed at about the same time and now reports are an explosion occured on one flight before the crash.

With all the problems in Chechnya (SP) it could be them.

They repeated the explosion theory again, apparently there were witnesses to that.

Could be bad. Considering Al-Queda has threatened attacks across the globe at the same time I hope our airliners are on alert (especially west coast). If this was possibly a signal event.

MSNBC is confirming both planes came from the same airport departing within minutes of each other.
