Airliner crashes in Russian city of Kazan

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A Boeing 737-500 airliner crashed on landing in the Russian city of Kazan on Sunday (November 17), killing all 50 on board and highlighting the poor safety record of Russian airlines that fly internal routes across the world's largest nation. The Tatarstan Airlines flight from Moscow was trying to abort its landing in order to make a second approach, but it exploded on hitting the runway, killing all 44 passengers and six crew on board, according to emergency officials. The only picture shown from the scene on Russian television reports was a blurred still shot of the plane's fuselage with fire-fighters in the foreground, apparently after they had extinguished a fire at the scene. Flight U363 took off from Moscow's Domodedovo airport at 6:25 pm (1425 GMT) and crashed just over an hour later, according to emergency officials. The plane was 23 years old. According to eyewitness reports, the Boeing lost altitude quickly
