Passenger Plane Crash Lands on Moscow Motorway (PHOTOS)

A passenger jet has crashed after taking a hard landing at Moscow’s Vnukovo Airport, witnesses say. At least one person has reportedly died. There may be survivors.

The plane may have been carrying 12 people: 8 passengers and 4 crew. It was coming from the Czech Republic.

Preliminary reports say the jet, which belongs to Russian airline Red Wings, rolled out from the runway into Kievskoye Highway, fell into pieces and caught fire. The plane might have been carrying a crew only.

Part of the crashed Tupolev-204 has blocked the highway; a traffic jam is developing at the scene.

Red Wings is a Russian airline that specializes in charter flights to Russia and Europe. In 2012 the company began to operate regular flights throughout Russia. The company is the largest buyer of Russian-made Tu-204 airplanes.
