MOSCOW, September 12 (Itar-Tass) — Poor visibility could have caused the Antonov An-28 plane’s emergency landing in Kamchatka in which 10 people were killed and four injured, the regional aviation services told Itar-Tass.
The An-28 plane was performing a flight en route from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky – to the Palana town, but did not arrive at the destination on time. Its search was immediately organised and the aircraft was detected from the air.
“The An-28 plane was flying in the poor visibility conditions. It fell in a remote area on dwarf pine, just 10 kilometres short of the destination. It is not ruled out that the plane’s crew tried to make an emergency landing, but the plane fell to the side and collapsed, but there was no fire,” the source said.
There were 14 people, including two crewmembers on board. Ten people, including a child and two crewmembers were killed and four were injured.
The injured will be taken to the Palana hospital, they are to be evacuated by a helicopter for which a pad is being prepared 3 kilometres from the crash site.
