What: Tatarstan Air/ Yak Service Yakovlev Yak-42 en route from Yaroslavl Russia to Minsk Belarus
Where: Yaroslavl
When: Sep 7th 2011, 16:05
Who: 37 passengers (including the Lokomotiv Yaroslav Hockey Team) 8 crew
Why: The flight took off from Yaroslavl but failed to climb, and struck an antenna outside of the airport, then struck the ground. Tunoshna ATC and other witnesses saw the flight roll (list) left and impact the ground.

Five fire brigades and a group of psychologists are on the scene.

Visibility was above 50km and it was partly cloudy according to local radar.

The plane is broken in two, the fuselage in the Volga river and the tail of the plane on the bank, a thousand feet from the airport. Reports are that the plane hit an antenna and Russian media quoted a flight traffic controller saying that the pilot failed to gain adequate height on takeoff.

Two passengers, flight engineer and the Russian player Alexander Galimov have been hospitalized with severe burns to 90% of their bodies. A third (unnamed) individual also has been hospitalized. Currently all bodies have been recovered. 103 rescue personnel were on hand, and 44 machines, including TSEPP aircraft.

The team was heading to Minsk, the capital of Belarus, where it was to play Thursday against Dinamo Minsk.

The charter flight was operated by Yak-Service Airlines, a Tatarstan Air plane. According to Russian FAA press officer, the plane “went through cursory maintenance service before departure to Yaroslavl and fully complied with all safety standards. The plane was built in 1993 and was certified airworthy until October 1.”

There has been discussion whether RA-42433 or RA-42434 was involved.
