MOSCOW (Reuters) – An Armenian airliner crashed into the Black Sea off the Russian coast in heavy rain on Wednesday, and all 113 passengers and crew on board were presumed killed, the Russian emergencies ministry said.
The plane, an Airbus A-320, was trying to land at Sochi, a popular seaside holiday spot in southern Russia, in bad weather when it slammed into the sea.
Also read that the age of the aircraft (1995) was being looked at.
11 years seems quite young these days for the age to maybe be a part of the crash though?
Recently serviced plane by all accounts and a experienced crew on board and no reported problems we are told.
Although weather seems to be indicated as a possible reason, maybe windsheer??
