71 dead after Russian passenger plane crashes

Psychic Russian 'foresaw deadly plane crash' but boarded plane anyway after misreading omen

Russian experts probing the weekend plane crash outside Moscow which killed 71 people said the accident may have been caused by ice on speed probes which led to faulty information on the craft's airspeed.

"We have made a decision to settle debts on all credit products of those killed in the plane crash", a representative of Sberbank said.

Hundreds of emergency responders are working through deep snow in order to retrieve debris from the crashed aircraft, which are scattered over a radius of a kilometer from the crash site. A day of mourning has been declared in Orenburg, the region where numerous passengers were from, and where Orsk is located.

Among the major problems, in March 2011 an An-148 crashed during a training flight in Russian Federation, killing all six crew on board.

According to Saratov Airlines spokesperson Elena Voronova, the pilot had 5,000 hours of flight time under his belt, while the co-pilot had 812 hours of flight time.

FBI Found No Evidence That Border Patrol Agent Was Murdered
New details have emerged in the FBI investigation into the death of a West Texas Border Patrol agent last November. A $70,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the attacker or attackers.

Faulty sensors may have provided pilots the wrong speed data which caused a plane to crash in Russian Federation over the weekend, investigators said Tuesday.

The plane is believed to have been fully intact until the moment of impact, when it exploded and strewed wreckage across the snowy field in which it crashed.

The Russian-made plane was reportedly seven years old and bought by Saratov Airlines from another Russian airline a year ago. "Radio contact with the plane was lost several minutes after takeoff and the plane went off the radar", said Russia's air transport agency.

President Valdimir Putin offered his condolences to the families of those travelling in the ill fated plane. The choir was due to perform to Russian troops operating in Syria. The probe into that crash is still ongoing, but officials indicated that a pilot error appeared to be the reason.
