Germany will have to reimburse a
Russian airline for the cost of its Tupelov 154... after that plane
and a DHL Boeing 757 cargo flight collided near the Swiss border
four years ago.
All 57 passengers and 12 crewmembers were killed in that
mid-air... blamed on a Swiss Skyguide controller officials say

airline... Bashkirian. The families of at least 30 people killed in
the collision are suing and seven Skyguide workers now face
