Plane crash in central Russia kills six, two of them Myanmar pilots

The Antonov-148 was carrying out a test flight, when it went down in central Russia on the border between the Voronezh and Belgorod regions.

A torn off wing could have caused the crash, according to reports. Eyewitnesses say they heard an explosion, and saw one of the wings and the tail fall off the plane while it was still in the air. The jet was going down over a school and a kindergarten, but the pilots managed to take it away from the residential areas.
