Russian Airliner Down Near Moscow

All 71 People On Board Fatally Injured

A Russian airliner has gone down near Moscow resulting in the fatal injury of all 71 people on board.

Reuters reports that the airliner, an AN-148 operated by Saratov Airlines, went down shortly after takeoff from Orsk, which is about 900 miles southeast of Moscow.

There is very little information to report in this early stage of the investigation. The airplane's cockpit voice and flight data recorders have already been recovered, according to the report. There is also footage from a CCTV camera that was posted online Monday showing what looks like a large ball of fire streaking across the sky.

The debris field is reportedly more than half a mile long. Officials from Russia's Emergency Situations Ministry said in a meeting broadcast on state TV Monday that it was organizing DNA tests in an effort to identify remains from the fragments of body parts that are being located.

Authorities says that the plane was manufactured in 2010. It was carrying 65 passengers and six crew.
