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

air traffic controller? The German court ruled that the government

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