TYUMEN, April 2 (Itar-Tass) — The passenger plane that crashed outside Tyumen early on Monday could have had problems during the takeoff, sources from region’s law enforcement agencies have told Tass.
“According to early data, the plane could have had technical malfunction, as communication with it was lost right after the takeoff, and evidently the crew tried to make an emergency landing, but failed and the plane went down when it was at a rather low altitude,” the source said.
According to the source, “the plane fell into two big parts during the crash. There are no small fragments”. “This has helped more than ten people to survive,” the source stressed.
