A Russian passenger plane believed to be carrying 71 people crashed Sunday afternoon near Moscow, shortly after takeoff from one of the city’s airports. No survivors were immediately reported. The An-148 regional jet disappeared from radar screens a few minutes after departing from Domodedovo Airport en route to the city of Orsk, 1,000 miles southeast of Moscow. Footage on state television showed plane fragments strewn across a snowy field about 25 miles from the airport. Russia’s Investigative Committee said all possible crash causes were being looked into.
